Pothier Nominated for Masterson

As expected, Brian Pothier will receive the Capitals' nomination for the Bill Masterson Memorial Trophy tomorrow when the team formally announces its decision.

Per Tarik

"...if there is anyone who "best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey," that player is Brian Pothier, who, of course, returned last month from a 14-month layoff with post-concussion syndrome and then scored his first goal since December 2007 in Friday's 5-3 win over Tampa Bay."
Pothier joins Boston's Pierre Bergeron, Buffalo's Teppo Numminen, Montreal's Patrice Brisebois, Ottawa's Daniel Alfredsson, Toronto's Ian White, New York Islanders' Mark Streit, Philly's Mike Knuble, New Jersey's Scott Clemmenson, New York Rangers' Blair Betts and Pittsburgh's Mark Eaton as a nominee.

The remaining nominees will be named by the end of the week.
