/ New York Rangers
The Hartford Wolf Pack are proud to announce that Richard Scott has been named the Hartford Wolf Pack’s 2001-2002 HG Insurance/K&K Insurance/AHL Man of the Year. The award honors the player adjudged to have made the greatest commitment to his community and charitable organizations throughout the course of the year.
In addition to making regular visits to schools, along with his Wolf Pack teammates, Scott took the initiative to make unsolicited trips to children’s wards at area hospitals. On numerous occasions, he would muster other players, and take time out to bring some cheer to those kids who needed it most.
Scott is now a finalist for the AHL’s 2001-02 Yanick Dupre Memorial Award honoring the overall HG Insurance/K&K Insurance/AHL Man of the Year. One player will be selected from the 27 individual team award winners to be honored during the Calder Cup 2002 Finals as the 2001-02 Yanick Dupre Memorial Award winner.
The Yanick Dupre Memorial Award is named after the late Yanick Dupre, who passed away in August of 1997 at the age of 24, following a 16-month battle with leukemia. Dupre played four seasons with the Hershey Bears (1992-96) registering 169 points (70-99) in 207 AHL games. He also played in 35 NHL games with the Philadelphia Flyers.
