The NHL revealed its 31 nominees for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy on Monday.

The award is given to the player who "best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to ice hockey."

Philadelphia Flyers forward Oskar Lindblom may be considered the front-runner this season after announcing he was cancer-free in December. Lindblom was one of three finalists last year.

Bobby Ryan won last season as a member of the Ottawa Senators. He entered the player assistance program to help fight his battle with alcoholism.
