- 1997: Trevor Linden received the award in recognition of his “Captain’s Crew” program, which allowed underprivileged children to attend games.
- 2016: Henrik Sedin won the award for his work as team captain (and usually alongside his twin brother) contributing to numerous charitable programs.
- 2018: Henrik and Daniel Sedin were named the first-ever co-winners of the award after their final NHL season as a “career recognition” of their off-ice work, including their $1.5 million donation to the BC Children’s Hospital in 2010. The twins also helped raise $42 million for the Canucks for Kids fund between 2000 and 2018.
