NEW YORK (AP) — Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne has won the King Clancy Memorial Trophy that annually honors an NHL player for leading on the ice and off it with humanitarian work. The National Hockey League Foundation will give Rinne $25,000 to donate to a charity or charities.
New Jersey Devils defenseman P.K. Subban and San Jose Sharks forward Kurtis Gabriel were finalists and each will receive $5,000 to donate.
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and deputy commissioner Bill Daly led a committee of senior league executives that chose the winner after each team nominated a player for the award.
