According to the NHL, the King Clancy Memorial Trophy is given annually to the NHL player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and who has made a significant humanitarian contribution to his community.

From all accounts Eichel took a huge step as a leader inside the room with the club this season. Head coach Ralph Krueger talked about his maturity throughout the year and I could personally see the change in approach during postgame interviews

After the season, players echoed a similar sentiment about his leadership and how they respected his passion, as well as his dedication to the game.

Off the ice, Eichel most recently made a considerable sized donation to the Western New York Community in partnership with Bauer. The Sabres captain donated 5,000 masks to area hospitals back in April when they were desperately in need.

Rob Ray was the last Sabres player to win the King Clancy back in the 1998-99 season.
