|As defined by the NHL, this trophy is awarded to "the player who best
exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication
to hockey." Along with the award, a grant is given from the PHWA in the
name of the winner of the award to the Bill Masteron Scholarship Fund,
based in Bloomington, Minnesota.
History of the trophy: The Masterton trophy was presented to the NHL
under a trusteeship of the Professional Hockey Writers Association to
commemorate the late Bill Masterton, a player for the Minnesota North
Stars, who had exhibited the qualities described above, and died on
January 15, 1968 after an injury he sustained during a game.
