The NHL announced the 31 finalists for the King Clancy Memorial Trophy today, and Charlie Coyle got the nod for the Bruins.

The award is given annually to the player who "best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community."

One of the cool parts of this nomination is that each player is nominated by the team itself, which is a nice nod to get from your employer.

Coyle, you may remember, was named the winner of the John P. Bucyk Award earlier this season, which the Bruins give to a player who makes great contributions to his community.

Given that award, Coyle was a lock for being a Clancy nominee.

Patrice Bergeron was the last Bruin to win the award, taking it home back in 2013.

Other Bruin winners include Dave Poulin (1993) and Ray Bourque (1992).

Congrats to Coyle!
