NEW YORK, N.Y. - Dustin Brown of the L.A. Kings, Mike Green of the Washington Capitals and goaltender Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabres are being recognized for their charity work.

The three players were announced as finalists Tuesday for the NHL's Foundation Player Award, which honours commitment, perseverance and teamwork in helping communities.

The NHL Foundation will donate US$25,000 to the winner's choice of charity.

Brown raised $40,000 for both the Kings Community Corner ticket program and the American Red Cross in relief efforts in Haiti. It's Brown's second straight nomination.

Green co-founded So Kids Can, a fundraising initiative that benefits youth-focused organizations each year. He donates $100 for every goal he scores and $50 for each assist and the figures are doubled during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

His charity organization raised nearly $30,000 last year for families that have children who have lost a limb or have a congenital limb deficiency.

Miller founded the Steadfast Foundation, which benefits those afflicted and affected by the consequences of cancer. The organization has raised more than $500,000 since it was created in 2006.

The winner will be announced June 23 at the NHL awards show in Las Vegas. Last year's recipient was Columbus Blue Jackets forward Rick Nash.
