Steve Sullivan One of Three Masterton Finalists

Sully at his best 30 seconds into this 48 second clip

Steve Sullivan is one of the final three for the Masterton Trophy as all Predator fans expected. Chris Chelios (due to his longevity) and Richard Zednik (for recovery from getting hid neck sliced) are the other finalists.

The basis for the award is for "a high degree the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey". Best I can tell, that defines Sully's love of the game and all the hard work over a two year period to be able to return to the game an play at a point per game level once he got back in his grove.

Congrats to Sully! You deserve it!

Comments from others on the Masterton

The CBC checks in with their slant.

Mirtle has a totally different take on the award.

Interesting that Zednik has jumped ship to the KHL. I wonder if he will be at the awards ceremony in Las Vegas.

Interesting story on Jackson's favorite, Alex Burrows, and his not being nominated for the final three.
