Patrice Bergeron, unsurprisingly, was nominated for yet another award.
The Boston Bruins center already was named a finalist for a ninth time for the Frank. J. Selke Award trophy, and was named his team’s nominee for the King Clancy Memorial Trophy.
“The nominees were selected by their respective NHL teams. The winner will be chosen by a committee of senior NHL executives led by Commissioner Gary Bettman and Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly. The selection committee will apply the following criteria in determining the finalists and winner,” a press release from the Bruins said.
The King Clancy Memorial Trophy is presented “to the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community.”
The three finalists will be revealed in August, though no date has been announced. The winner will be named during the Conference Finals.
According to the press release, “the first-place finisher will receive a $25,000 donation from the National Hockey League Foundation to benefit a charity or charities of his choice. The two runners-up each will receive a $5,000 donation from the National Hockey League Foundation to benefit a charity or charities of their choice.”
