Arizona Coyotes goaltender Connor Ingram is this year's recipient of the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, the NHL announced Wednesday.

Ingram - who entered the NHL/NHLPA player assistance program to treat his obsessive-compulsive disorder and depression in 2021 - enjoyed a breakout season this past campaign.

The 27-year-old secured the Arizona Coyotes' starting job, going 17-9-1 with a .919 save percentage over his first 30 games in 2023-24. He finished 23-21-3 with a .907 mark across 50 contests for the otherwise lackluster squad.

Carolina Hurricanes netminder Frederik Andersen and Calgary Flames defenseman Oliver Kylington were the other finalists.

Andersen was forced out of the lineup with a blood clotting issue six games into his season and ultimately missed 49 contests. Upon making his return in March, the 34-year-old won nine of 10 games with a .951 save percentage and three shutouts, helping the Hurricanes place third in the NHL.

Kylington took about a year-and-a-half off from hockey for mental health reasons before rejoining the Flames in January. He later revealed that during his absence, he'd worried about whether or not he'd be able to resume his career. The Flames blue-liner, who'll turn 27 on Sunday, averaged 17:15 of ice time while chipping in three goals and five assists over 33 games upon returning. Calgary made him a second-round pick in 2015.

The Masterton Trophy is handed out annually to the player "who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey." The Professional Hockey Writers Association votes to determine the winner.
