Senators Anderson Up For Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy

Ottawa Senators goalie Craig Anderson has been nominated for the 2016-17 Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.

The trophy is awarded annually to the NHL player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to ice hockey.

The Ottawa chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers Association announced the choice Monday, saying in a statement that Anderson has had a strong season despite his wife Nicholle being diagnosed with a rare form of throat cancer in late October.

Anderson left the team in early December to be at Nicholle’s side while she underwent treatment for her cancer at a New York-based facility and came back after the all-star break

Anderson played the 500th game of his NHL career on Saturday in Montreal.
