Ray Whitney is Dallas\u2019 nominee for Masterton Trophy

The Dallas Chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers Association nominates Ray Whitney for the 2012-13 Masterton Trophy.

Whitney embodies all of the characteristics set out in the award _ perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey. The 40-year-old winger was hit in the foot by a puck just two games into his first season with the Stars. He tried to play through a fracture for the next six games, but made the injury worse. He then had to sit out 16 games to let the foot heal.

Since his return, he has 21 points in 21 games. On the season, Whitney has 27 points (11 goals, 16 assists) and is plus-5 in 29 games played. Whitney has already earned one of the team’s four rotating alternate captain’s position.

Each team will nominate one player, and the PHWA will choose one winner of the award, which is named in honor of former Minnesota North Stars player Bill Masterton, who died in 1968 as a result of injuries he sustained in an NHL game. is the official Web site of DSE Hockey Club, L.P.  The Stars name and logos are registered trademarks of the NHL and the Stars.
