The Canadiens announced that the Jean Béliveau Trophy for charitable actions and community involvement has been awarded to none other than P.K. Subban.

PRESS RELEASE

MONTREAL - The recipient of the Jean Béliveau trophy for the 2015-16 season will be honored during a short ceremony before the game between the Buffalo Sabres and the Montreal Canadiens tonight at the Bell Centre. On that occasion, Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban will be presented with the award for his charitable actions and community involvement.

The selection committee, consisting of members of the Board of Directors of the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation, evaluated candidates according to their commitment, enthusiasm, implication and time invested in collective and personal initiatives. Candidates were also judged on their leadership and financial contribution to the causes they chose to support.

It should come as no surprise that Subban will be honored, seeing as he recently committed to raising $10M for the Montreal Children's Hospital, as well as various other amazing events he put in place to help lift the spirits of children.
