Mark Recchi in the running for Masterton Trophy

The Boston chapter of the Professional Hockey Writer's Association has nominated Mark Recchi for his Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy. The Masterton Trophy is awarded each year to an NHL player who demonstrates exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.

Mark Recchi is a not bad choice. Anybody who is 42 years old and still playing the NHL is certainly dedicated. My vote (if I had one) would have gone to Patrice Bergeron, though. Bergeron was nominated for the award last year, so I guess the hockey scribes want to recognize someone else, but it is hard to deny that Bergeron showed a ton of these qualities this season.

The last Bruin to win the award was Phil Kessel in 2007 after he returned to the ice after battling testicular cancer.
