  • Simmonds up for the NHL foundation award

    It's between him and Travis Hamonic of the Isles. I'm sure there are a lot of players who really give a lot of themselves in time and money. It's nice to see that the judges feel he's even far and above the usual charitable giving.

    Travis Hamonic of the New York Islanders and Wayne Simmonds of the Philadelphia Flyers were named finalists for the NHL Foundation Player Award, which is presented to "an NHL player who applies the core values of hockey -- commitment, perseverance and teamwork -- to enrich the lives of people in his community."
    NHL teams submitted nominations for the award, and the finalists were selected by a judging panel. The NHL Foundation will present $25,000 to the chosen charitable organization of the recipient.
    The winner will be announced at the 2017 NHL Humanitarian Awards at the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas on June 20 and recognized at the 2017 NHL Awards at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on June 21 (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN).

      People need to pay more attention to athletes who get it.
