The NHL announced this morning the 31 nominees across the league for the King Clancy Memorial Trophy, presented “to the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community.”
The LA Kings nominee this season is forward Trevor Moore, a Thousand Oaks native, who contributed to the local community here in Los Angeles during the pandemic, as well as during the season.
Partnering with the Kings Care Foundation, Moore spent time dropping food off at the local Children’s Hospital LA and giving out laptops and wifi hotspots to help kids with online schooling during the pandemic. Moore was selected for the award by the Kings, with the eventual winner chosen by Gary Bettman and Bill Daly, along with a committee of senior-level NHL executives.
The overall winner is expected to be announced with the full collection of NHL awards in the offseason. The first-place finisher at the leaguewide level will receive a $25,000 donation to benefit a charity or charities of his choice. The two runners-up each will receive a $5,000 donation to benefit a charity or charities of their choice.
Trevor Moore reflects on being able to give back to the LA community during the pandemic.
