Latendresse up for the Masterton Trophy
Guillaume Latendresse has been nominated for the NHL Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy for his outstanding performance this season with the Wild. The Masterton Memorial Trophy is awarded annually to the person who best shows the qualities of sportsmanship, determination and commitment to the sport of hockey. Latendresse is the type of player who never gives up, which has catapulted him to new career highs in every offensive category this season even after being traded by the Montreal Cadaniens to the MN Wild. The trophy will be decided by a poll at the end of the regular season. Last year, the Masterton Memorial Trophy went to a Nashville Predator.
