The league did not announce monthly winners in . At the end of the regular season, one player is chosen as the Leader of the Year. The first winner of the annual award was Chris Chelios of the Detroit Red Wings.

The award was named after Mark Messier, a longtime player in the NHL. Messier is, to date, the only person to be the captain of two different teams that won the Stanley Cup, doing so with the Edmonton Oilers in 1990 and the New York Rangers in 1994.
