In the last few seconds, the National Hockey League has just announced its three finalists for the 2022 Bill Masterton Trophy.
The three nominees are :
- Zdeno Chara
(New York Islanders)
- Kevin Hayes
- Carey Price
This is a nice pat on the back for number 31, who will need all the motivation he can get if he decides to start over and have a second surgery.
He has a big decision ahead of him, but either way, this nomination is well deserved, as he worked so hard and went through so much to return to the game last month and finish the season with the CH.
He gave us some great moments! The goalie came back after missing the first 74 games of the season, imagine that.
The Bill Masterton Trophy is awarded by the National Hockey League to the hockey player who has shown the most perseverance and team spirit.
The trophy honours Bill Masterton, a former Minnesota North Stars player who died on January 15, 1968 during an NHL game. The winner is chosen by the Professional Hockey Writers Association.
