Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber won the Mark Messier Leadership Award at the 2016 NHL Awards in Las Vegas on Wednesday.

Weber, who has been Nashville's captain since 2010, had at least 20 goals and 50 points for the third time in his NHL career in 2015-16, helping the Predators reach the Western Conference Second Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

He also helps several charities in Nashville, including founding the 365 Pediatric Cancer Fund with teammate Pekka Rinne, and in his hometown of Sicamous, British Columbia, where he hosts a golf tournament supporting the British Columbia Cancer Society.

John Tavares of the New York Islanders and Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals were the other finalists.
