April 17th, 2019 by Vegas Golden Knights @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

NEW YORK (April 17, 2019) – The National Hockey League announced today the list of nominees for the 2018-19 King Clancy Memorial Trophy, which is awarded “to the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community.”

The nominees were selected by their respective NHL clubs. The winner will be selected 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 of the King Clancy Memorial Trophy:

Clear and measurable positive impact on the community
Investment of time and resources
Commitment to a particular cause or community
Commitment to the League’s community initiatives (Hockey is for Everyone, Hockey Fights Cancer, Future Goals, Learn to Play, NHL Green, etc.)
Creativity of programming
Use of influence; engagement of others
Vegas Golden Knights defenseman Deryk Engelland was selected because of the impact he has had on the Las Vegas community. Engelland and his wife, Melissa, started a program to honor local heroes known as “Engo’s Heroes” at Golden Knights home games throughout the season, meeting and thanking each guest after the games. Engelland has also worked with Three Square to help children and families in need and has continued a six-year relationship with local firefighters that has raised money for children who cannot afford to play hockey.

The three finalists for the 2018-19 King Clancy Memorial Trophy will be announced on Tuesday, April 23, and the winner will be revealed at the 2019 NHL Awards™ presented by Bridgestone on Wednesday, June 19 at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
