The King Clancy Memorial Trophy is an annual award given to the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community.
The winner is chosen by select members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association and the NHL Broadcasters' Association.
The Clancy Trophy was first presented to the National Hockey League by the Board of Governors in 1988 to honor the late Francis M. "King" Clancy, a former Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs player, as well as coach and general manager.
