Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award
presented by Lightspeed Trading

Blueshirts fan, it's time to cast your vote for the 2010-11 Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award presented by Lightspeed Trading. From now through April 4th, 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, during a ceremony prior to the Rangers' April 7 game vs. Atlanta at The Garden!

Patti Ann, Steven, and Conor McDonald with 2009-10 winner Ryan Callahan at last year's ceremony.
