The 2014 nominees for the NHL’s Masterton Trophy Add to ...

It’s a unique award in hockey, given out each year to the player who best demonstrates “the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.”

Typically that means players nominated for the Masterton Trophy have battled through injuries or some tragic personal circumstance, although some branches of the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association, which votes on the award, have recently tried to steer it away from simply being a “recovery from a gruesome injury” trophy.

Unlike the Hart or Norris trophies, the Masterton gets a nominee from every single NHL team, making for a type of mini-honour for 30 players across the league. Those names are coming out in dribs and drabs lately as teams make their announcements, but it’s worthwhile to have them here all in one place.

Those teams without a nominee have yet to be announced:

Anaheim: Francois Beauchemin

Boston: Greg Campbell

Buffalo: Drew Stafford

Calgary: Mark Giordano

Carolina: Manny Malhotra

Chicago: Michal Handzus

Colorado: Nate Guenin

Columbus: Nick Foligno

Dallas: Rich Peverley

Detroit: Daniel Alfredsson

Edmonton: Ryan Smyth

Florida: Ed Jovanovski

Los Angeles: Willie Mitchell

Minnesota: Josh Harding

Montreal: David Desharnais
