Lightning’s Yzerman finalist for GM of year

The Lightning's Steve Yzerman is a finalist for the NHL's general manager of the year award, along with two other GMs whose teams are in the conference finals.

The Golden Knights' George McPhee and the Jets' Kevin Cheveldayoff also made the final three, announced Wednesday. Voting is done after two rounds of the playoffs by their peers and a small group of NHL executives and media members.

Yzerman is a finalist for the third time. He won the award in 2014-15 after finishing second in 2010-11, his first season as Lightning GM.

The winner will be announced at the NHL Awards on June 20.
