(Montreal) Carey Price has been named the candidate for the Montreal Canadiens for the King-Clancy Trophy for the 2019-20 season, the NHL announced on Monday.

This prize is awarded annually to the player who best demonstrates his leadership qualities on and off the ice, and who stands out for his contribution to the community.

The 32-year-old caretaker is from the Ulkatcho First Nation of Anahim Lake, British Columbia.

Since August 2004, Price has acted as the National Ambassador for First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities on behalf of Breakfast Clubs of Canada.

The organization aims to provide fresh and nutritious meals to school children.

Currently, 269 schools and 31,157 children from indigenous communities across the country are served.

Among their community involvement, Price and his wife Angela also contributed $ 10,000 to the founding of the Jewish Hospital in Montreal, to provide meals for hospital staff and frontline workers.

Established by the NHL in 1988, the trophy was notably won by Saku Koivu in 2007.
