The Budweiser NHL Man of the Year Award was sponsored by Anheuser-Busch to award an National Hockey League player based on his sportsmanship and involvement with charitable groups. Every NHL team nominates a player and the winner would be chosen by a panel of judges at the start of the Stanley Cup playoffs and receive $21,000 to donate to their charities.[1] The award lasted from the 1987-88 season til the 1991-92 season. After its inactivity the NHL established the NHL Foundation Player Award, which serves a similar function six years later.
