The Goaltending Champion was first awarded in 1985 and every year thereafter.
Five players have won the award multiple times, with Scott King winning three times. The others, Derek Heriofsky, Michel Larocque, Ty Conklin and Matti Kaltainen won twice. Only King and Larocque managed to win the award in consecutive years; the others required a gap year between winning the title. King also had a gap between his 2nd and 3rd award.
In the 2016–17 season, the title was awarded by Hockey East to Collin Delia of Merrimack despite not having the lowest GAA in conference play (2.21), as Jake Oettinger of Boston University's mark was 2.09. Delia, however, was the league leader in save percentage (.928).
