It hasn’t been fun for Tomas Holmstrom the past couple of years.

While he enjoys the scrums in front of the net and getting whacked and diced by opponents, it’s taken a toll.

But that’s the role in which Holmstrom has thrived, despite having to fight injuries.

And it’s because of that role Holmstrom was nominated for the Masterton Memorial Trophy, given to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.

“For sure when you’re hurt it’s not fun,” Holmstrom, 37, said. “The last two years, the two hernia surgeries, it was tough.

  1. Steve says:

    There isn’t one other player on the planet who deserves this award more than Tomas, for all the abuse he takes on a nightly basis, and yet has remained a class act and representation of the team, if not the city.

  2. DJ says:

    Good for Tomas! He takes a beating every year! I’m glad he is getting some recognition for his perseverance. I hope he wins it.

    1. Mike Droz says:

      He’s certainly deserves more than repeated whacks in the back of his legs from unhappy goal tenders.

      GO HOMER!
