Coyotes captain Shane Doan has been named one of three finalists for the 2011-12 Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award. The other two finalists for the award are Dustin Brown of the Los Angeles Kings and Ryan Callahan of the New York Rangers. The award recognizes an individual who is a superior leader in hockey and as a contributing member of society. It honors an individual who leads by positive example through on-ice performance, motivation of team members and a dedication to community activities and charitable causes. "Mark Messier was one of the greatest leaders to ever play in the NHL and I am honored to be nominated for his award," said Doan. "I would like to congratulate Dustin and Ryan on being selected as finalists. They are both great leaders." Messier solicits suggestions from club and League personnel and NHL fans through NHL.com in compiling a list of potential candidates, but the selection of the three finalists and the ultimate winner is Messiers alone.
