Defenseman Mark Giordano of the Calgary Flames won the NHL Foundation Player Award, given for community service, at the 2016 NHL Awards in Las Vegas on Wednesday.  

The Flames captain created "Team Giordano" two seasons ago, which helps provide resources to low-income schools in Calgary. It has helped schools purchase computers, journals, supplies and hockey floor equipment. Team Giordano has donated more than $200,000 to more than 1,400 students.

Defenseman P.K. Subban of the Montreal Canadiens and forward Matt Martin of the New York Islanders were the other finalists.
