2008 - Vincent Lecavalier

Vincent Lecavalier won the award a year after Koivu's honor. He was a member of the Lightning at the time, but it's important to recognize the kind of character individuals that the Habs currently have in their organization. Lecavalier is a special advisor of hockey operations for the Montreal Canadiens, likely due to wanting to continue his working relationship with longtime friend and teammate Martin St. Louis. He is also from L'ile-Bizard, Quebec, so being a part of the Canadiens organization is likely a lifelong dream.

Lecavalier won the award for his work with the Vincent Lecavalier Foundation.
