The Humanitarian and Community Involvement Trophy is awarded annually to the player having contributed the most to the well-being of his community and participated in nurturing his team's and the league's non-profit undertakings.
"We received many nominations from our teams and it was certainly a difficult task to sort through them" said Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Commissioner Gilles Courteau. "After going through the candidates, I can confirm that we have several players who are heavily invested in their communities and in so doing are outstanding role models."
"It's impressive to see the time that QMJHL players invest in their communities" said Andrew Molson, chairman of the Public Relations firm NATIONAL and Coors. "These players are excellent role models for young people and I am proud to present this trophy."
