B's Recchi nominated for Masterton Trophy

Mark Recchi has been nominated by Boston chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association for the 2010 Bill Masterton Trophy, presented to the player who exhibits "to a high degree the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey."

 

"It is a great honor, obviously. I kept on plugging along here, and it also means I am old," Recchi said. "There have been some great players who have been awarded this, and it is just a great honor to be able to play in the NHL still, and I love it and it is nice to be recognized."

 

The 42-year-old Recchi has played in all 79 games for the Bruins this season, collecting 17 goals and 25 assists for 42 points. He has gradually moved up the NHL's all-time scoring and games played lists. He is now ninth all time in games played (1,569), 22nd in goals scored (562), 17th in assists (922) and 13th in points (1,484).

Francona said pinch-hitting for Ortiz was not the right move for technical as well as psychological reasons. "I don't think it's the right thing to do," he said. "We want these guys to be fearless. I can't imagine five, six at-bats into a season having your 5 hitter looking over his shoulder."

 

Added Francona: "With a runner on second and nobody out, what the one thing David normally really does well even when he's not hitting? He pulls the ball. He pulls the ball on the ground. That's why they have the shift. Now he hit a popup to...
