Capitals goalie Jose Theodore wins Bill Masterton Trophy for perseverance

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Washington Capitals goaltender Jose Theodore capped a difficult season by winning the Bill Masterton Trophy for perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.

He beat San Jose's Jed Ortmeyer and Tampa's Kurtis Foster in voting conducted by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association.

Theodore's infant son Chace died last summer due to complications stemming from his premature birth.

He went on to have his best year since 2002, helping the Capitals finish with the league's best record and putting together a 20-0-3 run over the final three months.
