  1. 1. Who will win the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy?



Recommended Posts

funny it is all back east! although i feel for Boyle, he came back to play again cancer free. Dorsett, because he is not a star, i feel was ignored, he will never play again. he gave his all to the sport!!! luongo, would be okay for the win, and sorry being a woman who has gone thru  losing a child twice, is very sad, sad for karlsson too . life will go on  and will continue on with their hockey.  i still would have picked Dorsett!!! but good luck to all of them!

Boyle, but it's exciting to see Luongo on there. Truly a legend and if he keeps playing well, he'll win it at some point.

Anyone have synopsis of reasons for these three?  I dont know all the stories? 

Brian Boyle:

"Boyle, a 33-year-old forward, was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia, a type of bone marrow cancer, during training camp. He worked his way back into the New Jersey lineup by Nov. 1 and scored 10 goals in his first 25 games, including one on the Devils' Hockey Fights Cancer Night at Prudential Center, a 3-2 win over Vancouver on Nov. 24. Boyle missed three games after his season debut and represented the Devils at the 2018 Honda NHL All-Star Game."

 

Roberto Luongo:

"Luongo, 39, overcame hand and groin injuries to power the Panthers' late playoff push. Florida's all-time leader in wins, shutouts and appearances by a goaltender missed more than two months before returning on Feb. 17 to help the Panthers defeat Calgary 6-3. In a 13-game span, Luongo went 9-3-1 with a 2.44 goals-against average and .928 save percentage. On Feb. 22, Luongo delivered a heartfelt, unscripted speech to the crowd at BB&T Center prior to Florida's game against the Washington Capitals. The 12-year resident of nearby Parkland, Florida, addressed the recent Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting during the Panthers' pregame ceremony to honor the victims."

 

Jordan Staal:

"Staal, a 29-year-old center, showed great strength amid a family tragedy. In late February, Staal and his wife, Heather, announced their daughter, Hannah, was delivered stillborn due to a terminal birth defect previously diagnosed by doctors. Staal, who had assumed a bigger leadership role with the Hurricanes by being named co-captain before the season, missed three games following the tragedy. He finished the season with 46 points (19 goals, 27 assists) in 79 games, the second-highest goal and point totals in his six seasons with Carolina."

Boyle probably gets it but all three are deserving. Would be neat to see Luongo win.

Boyle's is a great story, and no doubt he'll win, but Jordan Staal went through the hardest time. That was real suffering.

Dorsett was the Canucks nominee.

 

The thing is with these awards, they aren't truly finalists.  There is no final vote.  The Professional Hockey Writers' Association had one vote and these guys were the top three vote getters.  So they have already picked the winner and the two runners-up, but they just tell us who the top three are to give it some drama for the awards night.
