Habs Add Staff, Masterton, Priorities, Awards and More

Max Pacioretty - 2012 NHL Awards - Portraits
Good morning Hab fans!

The NHL Awards took place last night. Evgeni Malkin came away as the big winner, collecting the Art Ross, Ted Lindsay and Hart Memorial Trophy in one fell swoop.

On the Habs front, Max Pacioretty's injury ordeal finally received a modicum of recognition from the league, as he was awarded the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.

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

In recent times, this has come to mean rewarding the most impressive comeback player in a given year.

Clearly, this is a much deserved award for Pacioretty, who could have easily seen his career end after suffering a devastating head injury.

But, after letting Zdeno Chara escape the infamous stanchion incident unpunished, it also seems like the league's recognition is a too little, too late.
