Alfredsson, Brown, Toews named finalists for Messier leadership award

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Daniel Alfredsson of the Ottawa Senators, Dustin Brown of the Los Angeles Kings and Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks are the three finalists for the Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award.

The award is presented to the player "who exemplifies great leadership qualities to his team, on and off the ice during the regular season."

Alfredsson, the NHL's longest-serving active captain, leads the Senators in games played, goals, assists and points.

Brown has spent his entire nine-year NHL career with the Kings, serving as their captain for the past five seasons. He is consistently among the league leaders in hits.

Toews was named captain of the Blackhawks in 2008 when he was just 20-years-old, making him the third-youngest captain in NHL history at the time.

All three players are involved in several charities in their home cities.

The winner of the award is selected by Mark Messier, who captained the Edmonton Oilers and New York Rangers to Stanley Cup titles in his career.
