The NHL has released the finalists for the King Clancy Memorial Trophy. The award is given to “the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community.” Last season was the first time it was awarded to a pair of players, as the Vancouver Canucks’ Daniel Sedin and Henrik Sedin took home the trophy for their long history of helping the Vancouver community.
Each team nominated one player for the award. The finalists are:
Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Arizona Coyotes
Jason Zucker, Minnesota Wild
Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers
