Ray Emery Nominated for Masterton Trophy

Ray Emery Nominated for Masterton Trophy
Quote:
It's a special award that takes an athlete with a certain set of characteristics to earn, and it's hard to find a more worthy list of nominees than the three announced by the League on Tuesday: Anaheim Ducks goalie Ray Emery, Calgary Flames forward Daymond Langkow and Philadelphia Flyers forward Ian Laperriere.

After getting off to a strong start with the Flyers during the 2009-10 season, Emery's career was temporarily derailed by a torn muscle in his abdomen, followed by the discovery he had avascular necrosis, a serious hip problem that led to the end of two-sport star Bo Jackson's career in the 1990s. Emery had successful hip surgery last April and eventually signed as a free agent with the Ducks. Called up late in the season due to vertigo issues suffered by normal starter Jonas Hiller, he went 7-2-0 with a 2.28 goals-against average and .926 save percentage to help Anaheim clinch the fourth seed in the Western Conference. Emery also started the final five games of the Ducks' first-round series against the Predators.

Looks like he has Greg Wyshynski's vote.

Our Ballot
Ray Emery, Anaheim Ducks
Pierre-Marc Bouchard(notes), Minnesota Wild
Ian Lapperiere, Philadelphia Flyers

Langkow is completely worthy, but we felt Bouchard was another player that persevered through a prolonged rehab filled with setbacks, false hopes and, finally, overcoming the odds to be a solid contributor to the Wild. But we also felt he was symbolic of the concussion issue in the NHL, too. If these things can have a snub, he's a snub.

In the end, Emery's tale is the stuff of Lifetime Original Movies. Which means it's the stuff of the Masterton.

Emery has matured a lot since coming back. I guess a year in the KHL can humble a guy quickly.

Nice to see his attitude improve a bit.
The off season couldn't come quick enough, he needs some more healing time.
Hope he wins this one.

Emery visited surgeon who did his rare operation and was pronounced close to a medical miracle for responding as well as he did.
Haha, even a miracle can't win a trophy in this league.
Good luck in free agency Razor.
