View Original Notice ? Devils’ P.K. Subban wins Clancy Trophy; Ducks’ Ryan Getzlaf a runner-up

P.K. Subban of the New Jersey Devils won the King Clancy Memorial Trophy on Tuesday, awarded to an NHL player for “leadership on and off the ice and who has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution to his community.” Retired Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf was one of three finalists.

Subban, a four-time finalist for the award, will receive $25,000 from the NHL to benefit the charity or charities of his choice. Getzlaf and Darnell Nurse of the Edmonton Oilers, the other finalist, each will receive a $5,000 donation from the league for the charity or charities of their choice.

Getzlaf played in the NHL for 17 seasons, all with the Ducks. His charitable efforts include launching the Learn to Play program, which has had 18,000 local children participate since its beginning in 2008, and the Getzlaf Shootout golf tournament to benefit the CureDuchenne organization.
