As the recipient of the 2019 King Clancy Memorial Trophy, the National Hockey League Foundation will donate $40,000 to the Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital.

Zucker and his wife Carly began a campaign in 2017-18 to raise funds for the Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital in Minneapolis, growing out of the couple's special relationship with the hospital and its patients. The #GIVE16 campaign started with a $160,000 donation by the Zucker's and has raised over $1.2 million.

The Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio opened on March 25, 2019 and allows children and their families to watch Wild games in a setting that simulates the experience of being at the game. It also serves as a state-of-the-art broadcast studio.
