The Mark Messier award is given out on an annual basis to a player who demonstrates exceptional leadership qualities on and off the ice, as well as contributes to the local community.



While many other NHL awards are voted on by media members, general managers, and or the players themselves, but this particular award is not chosen by a committee, or a voting group, but instead by only one man. Mark Messier himself.

"As a NYR fan this is comical, I hope they trade him at the end of the season."


On the play, Trouba deliberately tries to elbow Carolina Hurricanes forward Marty Necas in the head, but thankfully it missed.
