Lappy won the Masterton! (Lappy, Briere part owners of QMJHL team)

On Twitter, Bill M and Eklund say Lappy won.


Mod edit: fixed to 'rumour' pending reliable confirmation.

Awesome. Didn't expect it, I thought Emery would get it.

It's a crime if Emery doesn't win it.

Yay Lappy! He'll be presented with it tonight, right? Can't wait to hear his speech if so.

He was actually told he might not ever walk again. Either way, I agree that all three up for it deserve it. I might have come off a little harsh, don't get me wrong, I love Lappy. I just don't see how Emery doesn't get the award. Also, why would you actually cite Eklund?

So he should win because his doctors are stupid?

I think it has a lot to do with Lappy's career as a whole.

Agreed. And entire career of sacrificing his body for the good of his team.

I'm glad Emery was able to play this year, but personally, I'd much rather see Lappy win.

While Emery's dedication to hockey is unquestionably admirable because he fought his condition to come back and play, I think Lappy's dedication is even more impressive.

The difference is that Lappy laid his face and potentially life on the line in an attempt to help his team win by blocking shots and being gritty. That's how he's made his entire career in this sport: by giving up everything for the game.

Yes, Emery looked at the possibility of never walking again and rejected it to come back and play for Anaheim (due to Hiller's injury). That takes dedication. But it was just a freak degenerative injury that he battled through.

Lappy made the decision to expose himself to this injury that may well be with him forever in the name of the game, and has continued being dedicated to hockey by being a good teammate and doing work for the team as a whole. How anyone can write him off just because he hasn't been able to come back from the injury is beyond me. That's not what the award is for.

Lappy will never win anything again in his career. Let him have it.

Top poster is correct. It's a crime if emery doesn't win it. Emery has defied all odds to return to the NHL. Hell he defied the odd to walk, oh and i love lappy.

I'd be happy to see Lappy win, but my vote would have gone to Emery. People wondered if Lappy could come back. Nobody thought Emery was coming back.

Lappy is one of my favorite players so awesome for him. It is truly a shame that all of them couldn't have won it though.

Who was the third nominee? I forgot.
