Each year, the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy is awarded annually to the NHL player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to ice hockey. Members of the Professional Hockey Writers Association in each city nominate a player from each team.
Rozsival infamously blew out his ankle during the Stanley Cup Playoffs last spring, but has come back to contribute to the Hawks this season.
