Zoneranger's Whozis #206


Recommended Posts

On January 13, 1968, Minnesota North Star centre Bill Masterson struck his head on the ice during a game against the Oakland Seals. He died forty-eight hours later. This tragedy led to many players wearing helmets, though they were still in the minority.

Bill Masterson has a NHL trophy named in his honour. The Masterson trophy is awarded to the player that best exemplifies perseverance and dedication to the game. (*.5)
