Scott Darling Nominated For Masterton Trophy

On Wednesday, the Chicago chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers Association nominated goaltender Scott Darling for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.

Scott Darling

Each year, the Masterton Memorial Trophy is awarded to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to ice hockey. Bryan Berard was the last – and only the second – Blackhawks player to win the award, winning after the 2003-04 season. Before Berard, the only other Hawks player to win the award was Pit Martin after the 1969-70 campaign.

Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times wrote a masterful piece on Darling’s journey to the Blackhawks roster back in December. Read it.

Some thought defenseman Kimmo Timonen may have received the Chicago nomination, but Darling is certainly worthy. Here’s hoping he wins it!

  1. Congrats to SD, he deserves it. Also shows how much the Hawks org. thinks about him. Hope he is a Hawk for a long time. Kinda crappy for Raanta, but SD won the back up job fair and square. Raanta has one job right now…..bring home the Calder Cup

  2. Congrats to SD- well deserved. He has won the right to be recognized as such through his hard work and dedication to not only his position, but his team and teammates. Push ’em back, Scotty!

  3. I watch SD play in wichita Kansas (where I live) when he played in the chl. He honestly did not look good in his time here but he has put in a lot of hard work to get where he is today. Glad he is on the hawks its fun to watch him play!
