NHL announces Masterton Trophy finalists

Picking just three finalists out of a surprisingly high number of viable candidates this year, the NHL announced that Nashville's Steve Sullivan, Florida's Richard Zednik, and Detroit's Chris Chelios are in the running for the Masterton Trophy, given to the player "who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey."


Steve Sullivan

#26 / Left Wing / Nashville Predators

Came back this season after nearly losing his life when a skate blade cut his carotid artery in a game on February 28, 2008.


Chris Chelios

As the "cranky old man" of the NHL, Chelios is the 2nd-oldest player in the history of the league, behind the legendary Gordie Howe. Mr. Hockey would probably suit up again if he thought Chelios had a shot at unseating him.
