For the third straight year, Jonathan Toews has been named one of three finalists for the 2014-15 Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award, which is awarded "to the player who exemplifies great leadership qualities to his team, on and off the ice, during the regular season," the NHL announced Monday.

Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf and Winnipeg Jets captain Andrew Ladd were also nominated for the award.

Toews led the team with 66 points (28 goals, 38 assists) in the regular season, and piloted Chicago to its seventh consecutive postseason appearance.

Off the ice, the Blackhawks captain is involved with a variety of team fundraisers and charity programs, including the Make-A-Wish foundation and the Four Feathers Golf Invitational. He has also been a supporter of multiple foundations independently, such as the Israel Idonije Fundraiser, a non-profit "committed to impacting underserved communities by proving programs focused on social and emotional life skills."

The winner will be announced during the 2015 NHL Awards on Wednesday, June 24 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
