The Masterton Trophy nominees update

Apr 10, 2010, 5:02 PM EST

Thanks to James Mirtle over at the Globe and Mail, we have a running
tally over each team’s nominee for the Masterton Trophy, given to the
player who displays “qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and
dedication to hockey.” Here are the nominees that we have so far:

Anaheim:
Teemu Selanne
Atlanta: Jim Slater
Boston: Mark Recchi
Buffalo:
Calgary: Craig Conroy
Carolina: Rod Brind’Amour
Chicago: Brent Sopel
Colorado: Matt Hendricks
Columbus: Jared Boll
Dallas:
Detroit: Tomas Holmstrom
Edmonton:
Florida: Bryan Allen
Los Angeles: Brad Richardson
Minnesota: Guillaume Latendresse
Montreal: Jaroslav Halak
Nashville: Joel Ward
New Jersey: Patrik Elias
NY Islanders:
NY Rangers: Chris Drury
Ottawa: Matt Carkner
Philadelphia: Mike Leighton
Phoenix: Vernon Fiddler
Pittsburgh: Bill Guerin
San Jose: Jed Ortmeyer
St. Louis: Erik Johnson
Tampa Bay: Kurtis Foster
Toronto: Jonas Gustavsson
Vancouver: Henrik Sedin
Washington: Jose Theodore

If anyone other than David Booth wins,
I’ll get a bit angry. But that’s just me.

[Update: This is what happens when you write a post ahead of time, then don’t check to see what you wrote before publishing with the updated nominees. David Booth wasn’t nominated by Florida, which is a bit surprising to me.]

With Booth not a nominee, there’s pretty much no question that Jose Theodore (who is nominated) would be the favorite for the award. Heck, he was a favorite for the award anyway.

The award is voted upon
by the Professional Hockey Writer’s Association.

We’ll update this list as the final nominees are announced.

    Prepare to be a bit angry – Booth wasn’t nominated.
    Jose Theodore should win.

    Um, your list shows Bryan Allen for Florida, so I think you are destined to be a bit angry.
