COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS GOALTENDER SERGEI BOBROVSKY NAMED CLUB’S NOMINEE FOR 2017-18 KING CLANCY MEMORIAL TROPHY

COLUMBUS, OHIO – Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky has been named the club’s nominee for the King Clancy Memorial Trophy, the Blue Jackets and National Hockey League announced today. The award is presented to “the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and who has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution to his community.”

 

On the ice, the two-time Vezina Trophy winner once again ranked among the League’s top goaltenders as he went 37-22-6 with a 2.42 goals-against average, .921 save percentage and five shutouts in 65 games during the 2017-18 campaign. The 29-year-old native of Novokuznetsk, Russia closed out the season by going 12-2-1 with a 2.35 goals-against average, .926 save percentage and one shutout in his final 15 appearances.

 

Off the ice, Sergei and his wife, Olga, treated approximately 1,000 children and families to a suite night experience as part of Bob’s Battalion. Their guests enjoyed Blue Jackets games, concerts and special events in a catered suite and each went home with a Bob’s Battalion keepsake. The suite is also equipped with a set of “Bob’s” goalie equipment that offers kids a try-on station and photo opportunity.

 

Children’s-focused community partners that have benefitted include: A Kid Again, After-School All-Stars Ohio, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Club of Central Ohio, Central Ohio Girls Hockey Ohio, Columbus Ice Hockey Club, Girls on the Run of Central Ohio, JDRF Central Ohio, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Ohio Sled Hockey and Special Hockey.

 

In addition to joining his teammates to visit young patients at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and sort food at Mid-Ohio Foodbank, Bobrovsky also participated in this year’s Flashes of Hope photo shoot alongside several pediatric cancer patients during a practice visit to Nationwide Arena.

 

All 31 nominees were selected by their respective NHL clubs. The winner will be selected by a committee of senior NHL executives led by Commissioner Gary Bettman and Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly. The King Clancy Memorial Trophy winner will receive a $40,000 donation from the National Hockey League Foundation to benefit a charity or charities of the winner’s choice and the two runners-up will each receive a $5,000 donation from the National Hockey League Foundation to benefit a charity or charities of their choice.

 

The three finalists for the 2017-18 King Clancy Memorial Trophy will be announced on Monday, April 30, and the winner will be revealed on Wednesday, June 20, during the 2018 NHL Awards™ presented by Hulu at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
