Florida Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr won the Masterton Trophy, given to the player who "best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey" at the 2016 NHL Awards in Las Vegas on Wednesday.

Jagr, 44, had 27 goals and led the Panthers with 66 points, helping them to the Atlantic Division title for the first time. He became the oldest player to surpass 60 points in a season and moved to third place on the NHL's all-time points (1,868) and goals (749) lists.

Forward Mats Zuccarello, who led the New York Rangers in points after sustaining a fractured skull and brain contusion during the 2014-15 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis, who retired in December because of blood clots, were the other finalists.
