Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award

Presented by:

Blueshirts fan, it's time to cast your vote for the 2009-10 Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award presented by Lightspeed Trading. From now through April 5, be sure to cast your vote for the Rangers player that you feel "goes above and beyond the call of duty."

Following the 1987-88 season, the Rangers established the award dedicated to paralyzed New York City police officer Steven McDonald, who was shot in the line of duty.

When you cast your vote, you will automatically be entered into a sweepstakes as well, with the Grand Prize winner receiving an autographed jersey from the player who is selected to receive the Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award presented by Lightspeed Trading!

Conor, Steven, and Patti Ann McDonald with 2008-09 winner Ryan Callahan at last year's ceremony.
