The evening is highlighted by the presentation of the 8th Annual Emile Francis Award which is awarded in recognition of the sacrifice, dedication, and impact that volunteers have on grassroots development and youth and amateur hockey. This award honors former Rangers Coach and General Manager Emile Francis, who is a longtime supporter of minor hockey and founded the Metropolitan Junior Hockey Association, which was the foundation from which many local amateur hockey associations and leagues were born, and helped launch the careers of Rangers alumni Nick Fotiu and Brian Mullen who are both products of local youth hockey.
