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).

 

Hamonic, 26, has bonded with more than 200 children who lost a parent at a young age through his D-Partner Program. He has spent more than $50,000 hosting D-Partner Program participants at Islanders games, providing VIP treatment and special meet-and-greets. Hamonic has also served as event ambassador for the Children's Wish Foundation and participated in numerous community events with the Islanders, including school and hospital visits.

 

Simmonds, 28, has raised more than $100,000 through Wayne's Road Hockey Warriors, an annual event that has provided opportunities for youth in his hometown of Scarborough, Ontario, to learn and play hockey every summer since 2012. In addition, Simmonds joined the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation board in 2014 and spends time with children from the foundation on his off days. He's also purchased private suites to welcome military personnel and hosted Make-A-Wish children at Flyers games.

Yeah it kind of does, I have nothing against Hamonic and i understand why he would want to be closer but wanting to leave is non committal.... Anderson's wife is very sick as well did he ask for a trade?
