Jaromir Jagr, Manny Malhotra and Dominic Moore finalists for NHL's Masterton Trophy

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The New Jersey Devils' Jaromir Jagr, Carolina Hurricanes' Manny Malhotra and New York Rangers' Dominic Moore are the finalists for the Masterton Trophy.

The league announced Wednesday the finalists for the honour that goes "to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey."

The winner will be announced June 24 in Las Vegas during the NHL Awards show.

Instead of retiring, the 42-year-old Jagr led the Devils with 67 points this season. Malhotra has resumed a career that was put in doubt because of an eye injury. Moore came back to the NHL this season after taking a leave to care for his wife, who had liver cancer and died last year.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
