Glen Wesley Nominated for Masterton Trophy

Longtime ‘Canes blueliner nominated for perseverance after career-threatening surgery in 2000

RALEIGH, NC—The Carolina chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers Association has nominated Hurricanes defenseman Glen Wesley for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy. The Masterton Trophy is awarded annually to the National Hockey League player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.

Wesley, 39, played in his 1,446th career game on March 6 against Minnesota, tying him with Tim Horton for sixth place on the NHL’s all-time games-played list for defensemen. Wesley has played in 902 games with the Carolina franchise, despite career-threatening neck fusion surgery in 2000.

Wesley is the lone current Carolina player that was with the team when it relocated in 1997, and he has since played in 717 regular-season games with the Hurricanes, nearly 200 more than any other player. He has been a longtime alternate captain for the team, and captured his first Stanley Cup with the Hurricanes in 2006. The Red Deer, Alb., native was previously nominated for the Masterton Trophy in 2001, and won the Carolina PHWA’s Good Guy Award for media cooperation that season.
