Over the past three seasons, the 29-year-old has helped to lead and inspire nearly $75,000 in donations to the LGBTQ+ community, along with Flyers Charities, and he and his wife, Chloe, have personally donated $20,000 to the causes they are most passionate about impacting hundreds of individuals directly. The Flyers Alumni Community Leadership Award was developed by the Flyers Alumni Association. The Flyers Community Relations Department, in association with Flyers Charities, nominated the Flyers players to be considered this season and the winner was voted on and chosen by the Philadelphia Flyers Alumni Board. The Flyers Alumni will make a $5,000 donation to the charity of Laughton’s choice.

As recipient of this award, Laughton is the Flyers nominee for the National Hockey League’s (NHL) King Clancy Memorial Trophy. The King Clancy Memorial Trophy is awarded annually “to the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community.” The NHL will announce all 32 nominees from each team at a later date and the winner will be unveiled at the 2024 NHL Awards in late June.
