More Accolades for Ward and Staal

Cam Ward and Eric Staal continue to receive league wide recognition for their outstanding play this season.

Ward was named the NHL's First Star for the month of March.  It was just the third time in franchise history that a Hurricane earned the honor.  (Eric Staal (2005) and Mike Rogers (1980) were the others).  Ward started every game during the month and compiled a 10-1-2 record, along with a save percentage of .938 and GAA of 1.98.

Staal was nominated by his teammates for the King Clancy Memorial Trophy, which is awarded annually to the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and who has made a noteworthy contribution in his community.

The All Star center sponsors a program called "Eric's Entourage",  in which needy kids can attend games for free in Staal's personal suite.  Of course he also attends countless events throughout the season and is one of the most sought after players on the team. 

In addition to the Staal and Ward news, Rod Brind'Amour was nominated by the local media for the Masterton Trophy.   This is given to the NHL player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey.
