Matt Martin of the New York Islanders

Matt Martin is the New York Islanders nominee for the King Clancy Memorial Trophy, the NHL announced on Monday afternoon.

The award is given to “the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community.” Anders Lee was the Islanders nominee for the 2018-19 season.

Only two Islanders players have won the award since its inception in 1988, so if Martin took home the award he would be just the third Islander to do so in franchise history. Isles legend Bryan Trottier took home the honors in 1989 and Doug Weight won the award in 2011.

The NHL plans to announce the three finalists for the King Clancy Memorial Trophy in early August and they will select a winner during the Conference Finals.

The winner receives a $25,000 donation from the National Hockey League Foundation to benefit a charity or charities of his choice. The runner ups receive a $5,000 donation to the charity of their choice.

Matt Martin is known for his physical play on the ice. The fourth liner had 242 hits this season for the Islanders, but he is also known for his active presence in the Long Island community.
