Manny Malhotra has been named the Carolina Hurricanes nominee for the Bill Masterton Trophy.

The Masterton is awarded annually by the Professional Hockey Writers Association to the player who best demonstrates perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. "It's an honor and a cool feeling to be thought of in that regard," Malhotra said. "But it's not about look-at-me recognition and awards. It's about continuing after my goal and wanting to win a Stanley Cup." It's the second time in three years that Malhotra has been a nominee as he was also named the Canucks Masterton rep in 2012.

In his first two games back in the NHL since 2012-13, Manny Malhotra has absolutely lived up to his reputation as a faceoff specialist.

He's gone 25-9 in two games, good for a ludicrous 73.5 winning percentage. That includes a 5-1 mark in shorthanded situations. He's already fifth on Carolina with 25 FW. Unfortunately, he's not really useful for anything other than that skill at this point in his career.

It will be Malhotra's first game since the Vancouver Canucks decided to shut him down in February 2013 because of concerns about his vision.

"I believed in myself and my family believed in me. I knew that I still had something to contribute to a team."
