Steve Begin, 34, is the Calgary Flames nominee for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, as chosen by the Calgary Chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association.

The Masterton goes to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey and the league award has been won by a pair of Calgary Flames in the past. Those winners were Lanny McDonald and Gary Roberts. "When you love the game, it’s easy," said Begin, who has collected four goals and eight points in 36 games this season. "When you like playing hockey, it’s like a kid in a candy store. You just go out and have fun. That’s what hockey is about. If you like what you’re doing, it makes it easier for you."
