What happened to the Charlie Conacher Humanitarian Award?

Reading up on Charlie Conacher, I found this:

The Charlie Conacher Humanitarian Award was an award named after Conacher. It was given out to the NHL player who best exhibited outstanding humanitarian and public services contributions, and was awarded from 1968 to 1984.
But looking at the page for the award, it doesn't say why the award was discontinued in 1984.

In 1988 Harold Ballard presented the NHL with the King Clancy award for basically the same thing, though this one tied in with the NHL (Conacher award was unaffiliated with any league).

Does anyone know why the Conacher award was discontinued?

Over the years many awards have been renamed or retired

This one as I recall had something to do with politics of who did the most and a few other things and the fact it brought a lot attention to the fact that many players did little or nothing
