Two members of the Carolina Hurricanes were honored in voting by the Carolina chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers Association on Friday. Goalie Cam Ward was a unanimous choice as the team's Most Valuable Player, while Tuomo Ruutu won the Good Guy Award for cooperation with the local media.
Members of the Professional Hockey Writers Association vote on the NHL's first and second All-Star teams as well as the Hart, Norris, Calder, Selke and Masterton trophies. The Carolina chapter last month nominated Rod Brind'Amour for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, which honors sportsmanship, perseverance and dedication to the game of hockey.
