Maple Leafs nominate Wayne Simmonds for King Clancy Trophy

It appears that Wayne Simmonds has gotten the vote to be Toronto’s nominee for the King Clancy Trophy.

A King Clancy Trophy nominee is someone who “best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community.” One player from each of the 32 NHL teams gets chosen before a committee of NHL executives, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, and Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly.
