The NHL announced on Sunday evening that Minnesota Wild defenseman Matt Dumba has won the King Clancy Memorial Trophy, which celebrates a player's humanitarian work.

While Dumba has been in the mix donating to help Australia's recovery from wildfires earlier this year and even stopping to help a stranded family last winter, Dumba's biggest contributions have been raising awareness for social injustice.

In the wake of George Floyd's death last May, Dumba went to work organizing a fundraiser to help rebuild Lake Street and matched all donations up to $100k.

Dumba was also one of the founders of the Hockey Diversity Alliance which helps create a welcoming environment for everyone in the game of hockey. As part of the alliance, Dumba gave a two-minute speech condemning racism prior to the NHL's restart in Edmonton last month.

Dumba is the second straight Wild player to win the award as former Wild forward Jason Zucker won the trophy in 2019 and was a finalist for the award in 2018.

Fellow finalists included New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist and New Jersey Devils defenseman P.K. Subban.
