The New York Rangers announced that team captain Ryan Callahan has been named winner of the 2012-13 Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award.

Rangers captain Ryan Callahan accepts the 2013 Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award -- marking the fourth time in the past five years that he has won it.

The Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award recognizes the player who performs “above and beyond the call of duty.” The award, which is voted on by the fans, is named after New York City police officer Steven McDonald, who was shot and injured in the call of duty in November of 1988. The award has been given annually since 1988 to the player who fans believe plays with extra effort on the ice.

Callahan, 28, has won the Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award four times, having previously captured the honor in 2008-09, 2009-10, and 2011-12, which is second-most in franchise history behind Adam Graves’ five awards (1991-92, 1992-93, 1993-94, 1998-99, 1999-00). Callahan was originally selected by the Rangers in the fourth round, 127th overall, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

On September 12, 2011, he was named the 26th captain in franchise history after serving as an alternate captain the previous two seasons. He became the fifth youngest captain in team history and the first homegrown captain since Brian Leetch held the post from October 3, 1997 – July 13, 2000

The Rochester, New York native has registered 11 goals and 10 assists for 21 points, along with eight penalty minutes in 39 games this season. He leads NHL forwards in blocked shots (57), is tied for 26th among all league skaters in power play goals (five), and ranks 12th in hits (138).
