COLUMBUS, OHIO – Columbus Blue Jackets forward Jack Roslovic 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, Roslovic set a single-season career-high with 22 goals and 23 assists for 45 points with 12 penalty minutes, four power play goals and four game-winning goals while playing in 81 games during the 2021-22 campaign.  He also set a new club record for most goals and points (tied) in the month of April with 10-3-13 in 14 games.  Roslovic finished second on the club in game-winning goals and fourth in both goals and power play goals (tied).  He ended the season with a six-game points streak from April 17-28 (5-2-7), tied for the longest streak of his career.

Off the ice, Roslovic earned the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation Community MVP Award for the first time in 2021-22.  The Columbus native established Rosie’s Gears for Goals in 2020 to give back to the community that helped him get to where he is today.  The mission of the foundation is to support aspiring Central Ohio hockey players by equipping them with the gear they’ll need to succeed, while also building a strong community around the sport to help players see through their goals on and off the ice. 

To raise funds, Roslovic hosted the inaugural Rosie’s Gear for Goals TopGolf Event last August.  Roslovic has also established a partnership with, 614 Hockey, a local apparel company that represents the Columbus hockey lifestyle, to create the Jack Roslovic Collection with proceeds benefitting Rosie’s Gear for Goals.  Since its inception, the foundation has provided $70,000 in hockey equipment and hockey scholarships for youth in the Columbus area.

Outside of hockey, Roslovic works with local organizations to support children throughout the community.  In February, Roslovic partnered with Seeds of Caring, a local non-profit that engages young children through a variety of service projects and meaningful, age-appropriate conversations.  He collected supplies to create wellness kits in partnership with the Big Lots Behavioral Health Pavilion at Nationwide Children’s Hospital to support children with behavioral health needs.  Last summer, he participated in a charity softball game to benefit On Our Sleeves, a children’s mental health movement powered by the experts at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.  The campaign tackles mental health challenges among children, breaking stigmas and starting conversations.

All 32 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 $25,000 donation to benefit a charity or charities of the winner’s choice and two runners-up will each receive a $5,000 donation to benefit a charity or charities of their choice.
