Voting open for Bob Nystrom Award
Annual award presented since 1991 to the Islander who best exemplifies leadership, hustle and dedication

First awarded in 1991 to Brent Sutter, the honor is dedicated to “Mr. Islander.” Including the postseason, Nystrom played 1,057 games for the Islanders from 1972 through 1986, but is most remembered for the 1980 Stanley Cup clinching overtime goal.

Last season, forward Matt Martin was chosen for the award. Playing in his third-full season with the Islanders, Martin led the NHL in hits for the second consecutive season.

“I pride myself on being a hard-working player,” Martin said upon receiving the award last April. “There are definitely a lot of guys in the room that could have won it, but I’m honored to have my name on that trophy.”

Forward Frans Nielsen is the last Islander not named Matt Martin to receive the honor, as won the award during the 2010-11 season after leading the team with a plus-13 rating.

“It’s something I’m proud of,” Nielsen said. “I’ve always tried to be a guy that competes hard every night, so it’s awesome that the fans see that in my style of play.”
