He finished his season with a league-high six shutouts in 50 games.

Kylington, 26, returned to action after 18 months away from the game. Kylington has chosen not to publicly disclose the nature of the absence, but has said it was for mental-health reasons. He appeared in 33 games for the team this season, scoring three goals and posting five assists.

Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman Kris Letang claimed the honour in 2023.
