Vokoun played for the Predators from 1998 to 2007, and was in net while the Predators were starting to figure out how to contend for playoff berths.
The Predators chose Vokoun during the NHL expansion draft. Montreal initially drafted him, but he only appeared in one NHL game for them.
While his win/loss column doesn’t look that eye-opening, he has an awesome save percentage of .913 and a GAA of 2.55.
You also have to take into account that those early Predators teams weren’t filled with enormous talent to protect the goaltender.
Vokoun was invited to the All-Star Game in 2003. That same season Vokoun’s play helped carry the Predators to their first playoff appearance.
Even though the Predators lost in the first round, Vokoun registered the first-ever playoff shutout for the organization. The Predators were starting to be recognized as a legit playoff contender, and in big part to having Vokoun in net.
The end of Vokoun’s career with the Predators was plagued with health issues and injuries. Eventually, he was traded to the Florida Panthers.
