Which goalies have the best ratings in NHL 21?

The best netminders in NHL 21.

Before the launch of NHL 21, EA Sports released ratings for the game’s top goalies. Several Vezina Trophy winners made the top 10, and the best goalie heading into NHL 21 is the netminder who helped lead the Tampa Bay Lightning to their second Stanley Cup championship in September: Andrei Vasilevskiy.

Top 10 goalies in NHL 21

Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy received a 91 OVR rating by EA Sports. The 2019 Vezina Trophy winner finished one point higher than Ducks netminder John Gibson (90 OVR), who is the second-highest rated goalie in NHL 21. Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask rounds out the top three, as he was also given a 90 OVR rating by the NHL team.

Here are the top ten rated goalies in NHL 21, sorted by overall rating:

  1. Andrei Vasilevskiy – 91 OVR
  2. John Gibson – 90 OVR
  3. Tuukka Rask – 90 OVR
