Jacob Trouba of the New York Rangers was named the winner of the 2023-24 Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award on Tuesday.

On the ice, Trouba helped lead the Rangers to the Presidents’ Trophy during the regular season, when they established franchise records for wins (55) and points (114). The Rangers lead the Eastern Conference Second Round in the Stanley Cup Playoffs 3-2 against the Carolina Hurricanes and can advance to the Eastern Conference Final for the second time in three years with one more win against Carolina.

The Rangers captain notched three goals and 19 assists in 69 regular-season games. He led the team in shorthanded ice time with 2:51 per game and was fourth on the team in average ice time per game at 21:15. In the playoffs, he has one goal (shorthanded) and three assists in nine games.


Trouba is widely respected for his leadership skills with the Rangers and is a strong veteran presence in the Blueshirts locker room.

Off the ice, Trouba’s contributions to the community and to the game of hockey have been remarkable. He has been a large part of The Garden of Dreams Foundation, Hockey Fights Cancer, and the Rangers Youth Hockey Camp, which has helped children ages 6-12 in the Metropolitan area learn the game of hockey.
