Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - The Buffalo chapter of the Pro Hockey Writers Association has chosen Jason Pominville as the Sabres' candidate for the Bill Masterton Trophy.

Pominville found out Thursday after the Sabres morning skate. He said, “It’s fresh, I just found out coming off the ice, but it’s definitely nice to be able to represent the team.

“I think it’s a trophy that represents a lot of perseverance and dedication, so to be nominated to represent the team and the city is an honor for sure.”

Pominville is a guy who tries to lead on and off the ice with his actions. He said it’s nice to be recognized for that, “I’ve always thrived on trying to do things the right way and present myself the right way to you guys, to my teammates and in the city, so if the award is representative of that, then that’s an honor for sure.”

Pat LaFontaine and Don Luce have won the award while playing for the Sabres, as has former Sabre Dominic Moore.
