Look: Robin Lehner’s NHL award has a pretty terrible mix-up
Goaltender Robin Lehner was awarded the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy at the end of the 2018-19 season, honoring him for perseverance and sportsmanship after he battled back from alcoholism and bipolar disorder to backstop the team to the playoffs. However, there was one little problem with the trophy.
Lehner won the award as a member of the New York Islanders, but the trophy listed him as a member of the New York Rangers in a pretty big error.

One would assume the NHL will supply him with a new nameplate. It’s the least they can do, especially after Lehner formed such a quality bond with Islanders fans over the course of the season.
