New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, Arizona Coyotes defenceman Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Minnesota Wild forward Jason Zucker are the finalists for the King Clancy Memorial Trophy.

The award is given annually “to the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community.”

Lundqvist has been one of the most successful netminders of his generation and has also been one of the more generous NHL stars during his career. He and his wife, Therese, continued their great work through the Henrik Lundqvist Foundation that has raised more than $2.5 million for various charities since 2014.

Meanwhile, Ekman-Larsson and Zucker both served as Hockey Is For Everyone ambassadors for their respective teams as well as raising funds for various charitable endeavours throughout Arizona and Minnesota.
