Jack Eichel nominated for the King Clancy Trophy


The NHL continues to announce finalists for individual awards for the 2019-20 season. On Monday, the league announced each team's nominee for the King Clancy Memorial Trophy, given to the player who, according to the league, "best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community.”

This year's nominee from the Buffalo Sabres for the King Clancy Trophy is captain Jack Eichel. It is his second consecutive year where he has represented the Sabres as the nominee for the award.

This year's winner will be announced during the Conference Finals in August. That individual will receive a $25,000 donation from the NHL to a charity or charities of their choice. The two runners up will receive $5,000 to a charity of their choice.

Rob Ray is the only Sabres player to ever win the King Clancy Trophy when he did so in 1999.
