The Anaheim chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association (PHWA) has announced that forward Patrick Eaves has been selected as the Ducks’ nominee for the 2018-19 Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy. The Masterton Trophy is presented annually to the NHL player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. The winner will be selected at the end of the regular season by the full PHWA’s 30 chapters.

Eaves, 34 (5/1/84), has battled illness and injury that has limited him to nine games in the past two seasons. This is Eaves’ second Masterton nomination, his first coming as a member of the Dallas Stars during the 2014-15 campaign. Originally selected by the Ottawa Senators in the first round (29th overall) of the 2003 NHL Draft, Eaves has appeared in 633 career NHL games with Anaheim, Dallas, Nashville, Detroit, Carolina and Ottawa earning 132-110=242 points with 210 penalty minutes (PIM).

In his first season with Anaheim in 2016-17, Eaves collected 11-3=14 points with a +8 rating in 20 contests for the Ducks. During that span, Eaves led all Ducks players in goals and ranked third in points. Eaves also appeared in seven playoff games with the 2017 Ducks, registering 2-2=4 points.
