Masterton Leader

As the NHL regular season is about a quarter of the way done, I am picking leaders for NHL awards that I have yet to discuss this season.  Today, I am picking a Masterton Trophy leader.  This award is officially for perseverance, dedication and sportsmanship but it is more accurately described as the award for the best performance from a player who overcame the biggest hardship...
