NEW YORK – Arizona Coyotes goaltender Connor Ingram has been named the winner of the Bill Masterson Memorial Trophy.

The award recognizes the player who “best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey.” It was presented by the Professional Hockey Writers Association (PHWA) to honour the late Bill Masterton.

Calgary Flames defenceman Oliver Kylington and Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Frederik Andersen were the other two finalists.

Ingram posted a 23-21-3 record, 2.91 goals-against average, .907 save percentage and tied for a league-best six shutouts in 50 appearances for Arizona in 2023-24.

Ingram almost retired due to an undiagnosed obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and lingering depression before he sought help through the NHL/NHLPA Player Assistance program in 2021.

Claimed off waivers by Arizona in October 2022, Ingram appeared in 27 games for the club in 2022-23 before establishing himself as the Coyotes’ starting netminder this season.
