Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler today was nominated for the 2018-19 King Clancy Memorial Trophy, which is awarded “to the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community.
This season, Fowler and his fiancée, Jasmine Maggard, launched C4Kids – a program that provides youth with opportunities to learn, play and love hockey. Fowler’s passion for hockey inspired him to create C4Kids as a platform to feature a variety of activities for children and their families to enjoy and grow their love for the sport.
The nominees were selected by their respective NHL clubs. The winner will be selected by a committee of senior NHL executives led by Commissioner Gary Bettman and Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly. The selection committee will apply the following criteria in determining the finalists and winner of the King Clancy Memorial Trophy:
