NEW YORK - Detroit's Chris Chelios, the NHL's oldest player at 47, joined Nashville's Steve Sullivan and Florida's Richard Zednik on Thursday as finalists for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.

The award, named in honour of late Minnesota North Stars player Bill Masterton, is given to "the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey." The winner will announced June 18 in Las Vegas.

Sullivan returned to the Predators this season after missing almost two full years because of a back injury. Zednik had 17 goals in 70 games, a season after his carotid artery was sliced by a teammate's skate blade in Buffalo.

Quote of the Day

Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career and this is where I want to be so I am really happy. This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me. I know they want to see me get better as a player and this is the place to do it.

— Zac Rinaldo to the Flyers website on signing a two-year contract extension with Philadelphia
