Laughton named Flyers' 2020-21 King Clancy Memorial Trophy nominee originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

Scott Laughton on Tuesday was announced as the Flyers' nominee for the 2020-21 King Clancy Memorial Trophy, which is awarded annually "to the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community."

Each NHL club selects its nominee and the winner of the award is picked by a committee of senior NHL executives, led by commissioner Gary Bettman and deputy commissioner Bill Daly. The award winner will receive a $25,000 donation to benefit a charity or charities of his choice, while the second- and third-place finishers will each receive a $5,000 donation to benefit a charity or charities of their choice.

Laughton, who signed a five-year contract extension at the April 12 trade deadline, has spent his entire professional career in the Flyers' organization, going back to 2013 after he was selected in the first round of the 2012 draft.

"I love it here in Philly," Laughton said in April.

Last season, Laughton, a hard-working forward who turns 27 years old later this month, earned the Flyers' Yanick Dupre Class Guy Award.
