NHL Foundation Award
The NHL Foundation Player Award is awarded annually to the National Hockey League (NHL) player "who applies the core values of (ice) hockey—commitment, perseverance and teamwork—to enrich the lives of people in his community".
Fourteen players have won the NHL Foundation Player Award since its inception; when Kelly Chase was awarded the inaugural NHL Foundation Player Award in 1998. No player has ever won the award twice, nor has any team been represented twice by winners.
The award is closely related to the King Clancy Memorial Trophy, as both are awarded to a player who has made a significant humanitarian contribution to his community.
Only four of the 14 NHL Foundation Player Award winners — Darren McCarty, Marty Turco, Joe Sakic and 2012 winner Mike Fisher — have failed to win the King Clancy Memorial Trophy at least once in his career.
German Olaf Kolzig is the only non-Canadian winner, and Ron Francis is the only winner to have been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
