    QMJL Awards

    Jean-Béliveau Trophy“Awarded to the player who had the most points during the regular season.”

    Awarded to @Parihse RW, St. Johns Seadogs, 20-3-1, 95 pts, 47 goals, 69 +/-



    Michel-Brière Trophy“Awarded to the player who was the most valuable to his team.”

    Awarded to @CRAZYROGO-1-7 RW St. Johns Seadogs, 94 pts, 29 goals, 65 +/-, 1.77 AGA, 20-2-0 Record, 8 PIMs

    The Michel-Brière Trophy may very well be the most difficult award to judge in a league like ours. Many factors must be considered other than what initially meets the eye. All of the following must be considered when determining those who should be nominated for the Michel-Brière Trophy, in no particular order:


    1) Production in relation to peers. It goes without saying that players who produce more statistically are generally the most valuable to their teams. This can be based off Points, Goals, Gaa, Win/Loss record. Sometimes a Goalie can be a big reason a team excels and must be considered as well.

    2)Individual record. In a league where players don't get to play every game in a season, individual record becomes a very important and telling statistic. At the end of the day it's about winning, and to be considered for Michel-Brière Trophy you should be posting at minimum a respectable record.

    3) Strength of schedule. In a league where managers (and players, to a certain extent), are able to choose who they play against, it is important to consider strength of opposition when determining individual awards. The main things to examine here are record vs playoff teams as compared to record vs non-playoff teams, as well as statistical production vs playoff teams as compared to vs non-playoff teams. Specifically, a player who plays a majority of his games against stronger teams and has a quality record in these games should be rewarded over players who mainly play against weaker teams.

    4) Team performance. It is extremely rare for a player on a below average (non-playoff) team to win Michel-Brière Trophy . It shouldn't be cut and dry that your team has to make the playoffs to be considered, but note that it should take a rather herculean effort from a player on a non-playoff team to win/be considered for Michel-Brière Trophy. Examples of this are players on losing teams that display a winning record, significantly better individual production than the rest of their team, all while playing against top quality competition throughout the season. Cases of this happening should be VERY few and far between.

    5) Position. It is extremely rare for a non-forward to win the Michel-Brière Trophy but not unheard of, especially in the modern day QMJHL. This obviously isn't the real QMJHL, but similar reasons for this still apply. For a defenseman or goalie to win/be considered for Michel-Brière Trophy, they would need to put up a seasonal performance that significantly stands out among the peers at their position, along with stacking up in the gauntlet of all other listed criteria.

    6) Perceived individual skill. Players who are widely recognized to be more skilled at the game should be given a slight leg up over players who have more of a, for lack of a better term, "fluky" season. This should only be considered in situations where the other criteria does not provide a clear winner. It's a simple fact that the superstars of the league win the Michel-Brière Trophy 99% of the time.

    Jacques-Plante Trophy“Awarded to the QMJHL’s top goaltender”

    Awarded to @WutangCreamx0 G, Drummondville Voltigeurs, 32-13 Record, 87.6 Sv%, 1.93 GAA, 8 Shutouts

    As far as individual stats are concerned, it is expected that goalies will allow less goals against weaker teams. Goalies should only be downgraded in this area if they allow a significant and disproportionate amount of goals in games against playoff teams. In especially tight cases between goalies, also consider evaluating the individual lineups that they face throughout the season. Subjectively quantify teams' 1st/2nd/3rd lines, and examine how many of each the goalies have played against throughout the season, in combination with playoff/non playoff.

    Criteria:

    1) Production in relation to peers. It goes without saying that goaltenders with high SV%, low GAA, and the most shutouts are generally the "best" in the league. In particular, SV% should be weighted slightly more than GAA when analyzing stats. Also compare how a goalie did in comparison to the other goalie(s) on his team throughout the season. This gives some extra insight into how truly outstanding a goalie's performance was.

    2) Individual record. In a league where goalies don't get to play every game in a season, individual record becomes a very important and telling statistic. At the end of the day it's about winning, and to be considered for the Jacques-Plante Trophy you should be posting at minimum a respectable record. Also note that to be eligible for the Jacques-Plante Trophy you need to have played the most goalie games on your team. You can't be judged as the best goalie in the league if you weren't even judged as the best goalie on your team. It's preferable for goalies to have gotten a brunt of the workload throughout the season as opposed to an average 5/4 split, but this is not mandatory for consideration.

    3) Linemates. This is mainly to note that a goalie should not be significantly punished during consideration simply for playing behind a talented team. In the real QMJHL, goalies frequently win the Jacques Plante Trophy despite playing on teams filled with star players. On the flip side of this, goalies should not significantly benefit during consideration simply for playing on a below average team.

    4) Strength of schedule. In a league where managers (and players, to a certain extent), are able to choose who they play against, it is important to consider strength of opposition when determining individual awards. The main things to examine here are record vs playoff teams as compared to record vs non-playoff teams, as well as statistical production vs playoff teams as compared to vs non-playoff teams. Specifically, a goalie who plays a majority of his games against stronger teams and has a quality record in these games should be rewarded over players who mainly play against weaker teams.

    Emile-Bouchard Trophy “Awarded to the best defenseman in the QMJHL”

    Awarded to @Morn RD St. Johns Seadogs, 21-3-0 Record, 64 +/-, 33 Pts, 39 GA

    Criteria:

    1) Production in relation to peers. It is very important to note, however, that the Emile-Bouchard Trophy is not the "best offensive defenseman" award. Many other factors are at play here, and statistical production is only one part of this. It is, however, still an important part. Let it be noted that GAA for defensemen (that is, the average goals allowed in games the defenseman played in throughout the season) is to be examined and evaluated on at least an equal footing with the defenseman's offensive production.

    2) Individual record. In a league where players don't get to play every game in a season, individual record becomes a very important and telling statistic. At the end of the day it's about winning, and to be considered for Emile-Bouchard Trophy you should be posting at minimum a respectable record.

    3) Linemates. This is mainly to note that a player should not be significantly punished during consideration simply for playing with a talented line. In the real QMJHL, players frequently win the Emile-Bouchard Trophy despite playing alongside other superstar caliber players. On the flip side of this, players should not significantly benefit during consideration simply for playing on a below average team or with below average linemates.

    4) Strength of schedule. In a league where managers (and players, to a certain extent), are able to choose who they play against, it is important to consider strength of opposition when determining individual awards. The main things to examine here are record vs playoff teams as compared to record vs non-playoff teams, as well as statistical production vs playoff teams as compared to vs non-playoff teams (note that included in this is GAA. Analyze the average goals his team allows when a defenseman plays, and not simply the defenseman's offensive output in these games). Specifically, a player who plays a majority of his games against stronger teams and has a quality record in these games should be rewarded over players who mainly play against weaker teams.

    As far as individual stats are concerned, it is expected that players will get more points (and allow less goals) against weaker teams. Players should only be downgraded in this area if they acquire a significant and disproportionate amount of their points (or allow a significant and disproportionately low amount of goals) in games against non-playoff teams. In especially tight cases between players, also consider evaluating the individual lineups that players face throughout the season. Subjectively quantify teams' 1st/2nd/3rd lines, and examine how many of each the players have played against throughout the season, in combination with playoff/non playoff

    Guy-Carbonneau Trophy"Awarded to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game."

    Awarded to @dusty554 LW Rimouski Oceanic, 15-5-3, 51 pts, 10 PIMS, +26 +/-, 1.73 AGA, 87.9% PPKE


    Criteria:

    Note that increasingly, although not exclusively, the Guy Carbonneau trophy is awarded to players in the QMJHL that also produce at an above average level offensively. Considering the nature of our league, it will almost always be the case that players deserving of nomination for the Guy-Carbonneau will also produce at an above average level offensively. However, offensive production specifically should not be a factor in determining who is more deserving of the award. Also note that increasingly, although not exclusively, the Guy-Carbonneau is awarded to players in the QMJHL that play the position of center. Playing wing should hinder, but not preclude, a player from winning or being nominated for the Selke.


    1) Stats to consider when evaluating players to nominate for the Selke are the following: Record, +/-, PIM, FO%, AGA, and PPKE. Note that players should not receive a massive bonus due to a high +/- simply due to outlandish offensive production. AGA is a much more reliable indicator of defensive superiority than +/- is.


    2) Linemates. This is mainly to note that a player should not be significantly punished during consideration simply for playing with a talented line. In the real QMJHL, players frequently win the Guy Carbonneau Trophy despite playing alongside other superstar caliber players. On the flip side of this, players should not significantly benefit during consideration simply for playing on a below average team or with below average linemates.

    RDS Cup“Awarded to the best rookie in the QMJHL”

    Awarded to @CRAZYROGO-1-7 RW St. Johns Seadogs, 94 pts, 29 goals, 65 +/-, 1.77 AGA, 20-2-0 Record, 8 PIMs

    Same criteria as Michel Brière trophy. To be a considered a rookie, a player would have had to have played in 8 games at most prior to this season.


    Michel-Bergeron Trophy"Awarded to the league's most outstanding rookie forward."

    Awarded to @Parihse RW, St. Johns Seadogs, 20-3-1, 95 pts, 47 goals, 69 +/-

    Criteria:

    For the purposes of this award, rookies are defined as players who have not played more than 8 games in a prior season in the QMJHL. Apart from this restriction, the evaluation for this award will be identical to that of the Michel-Brière Trophy’s criteria for forwards.

    Raymond-Lagacé Trophy “Awarded to the rookie defenseman who displays the best all around ability. To be a considered a rookie, a player would have had to have played in 8 games at most prior to this season.”

    Awarded to @big_sleezy00 RD, Halifax Mooseheads, 14-7-2 Record, 24 Pts, +12 +/-, 16 PIMs

    Criteria:

    1) Production in relation to peers. It is very important to note, however, that the Raymond-Lagacé Trophy is not the "best offensive defenseman" award. Many other factors are at play here, and statistical production is only one part of this. It is, however, still an important part. Let it be noted that GAA for defensemen (that is, the average goals allowed in games the defenseman played in throughout the season) is to be examined and evaluated on at least an equal footing with the defenseman's offensive production.


    2) Individual record. In a league where players don't get to play every game in a season, individual record becomes a very important and telling statistic. At the end of the day it's about winning, and to be considered for the Raymond-Lagacé Trophy you should be posting at minimum a respectable record.

    3) Strength of schedule. In a league where managers (and players, to a certain extent), are able to choose who they play against, it is important to consider strength of opposition when determining individual awards. The main things to examine here are record vs playoff teams as compared to record vs non-playoff teams, as well as AGA vs playoff teams as compared to vs non-playoff teams. Specifically, a player who plays a majority of his games against stronger teams and has a quality record in these games should be rewarded over players who mainly play against weaker teams.


    As far as AGA is concerned, it is expected that players will allow less goals against weaker teams. Players should only be downgraded in this area if they allow a significant and disproportionate amount of goals in games against playoff teams. In especially tight cases between players, also consider evaluating the individual lineups that players face throughout the season. Subjectively quantify teams' 1st/2nd/3rd lines, and examine how many of each the players have played against throughout the season, in combination with playoff/non playoff.


    4) Perceived individual skill. Players who are widely recognized to be more defensively skilled at the game should be given a slight leg up over players who have more of a, for lack of a better term, "flukey" season. The Selke is one of the more difficult awards to hand out in our league due to the nature of not being able to watch every game and specifically analyze a player's performance. Many of the stats and indicators used in the real QMJHL to vote on this award are not available or simply unreliable in our virtual setting. Therefore, along with the criteria listed above, a player's generally accepted skill level needs to be taken into account.

    Kevin-Lowe Trophy“Awarded to the defenseman who demonstrates the greatest defensive ability throughout the season.”

    Awarded to@EddieDrag RD ,Cape Breton Screamin Eagles, 1.95 AGA, 65 T/A, 51 Hits, 31 +/- , 19-3-2 Record, 91.2% PPKE

    Criteria:

    1. Stats: Let it be noted that GAA for defensemen (that is, the average goals allowed in games the defenseman played in throughout the season) is to be examined and evaluated.

    2. Individual record. In a league where players don't get to play every game in a season, individual record becomes a very important and telling statistic. At the end of the day it's about winning, and to be considered for Kevin-Lowe Trophy you should be posting at minimum a respectable record.

    3. Strength of schedule. In a league where managers (and players, to a certain extent), are able to choose who they play against, it is important to consider strength of opposition when determining individual awards. The main things to examine here are record vs playoff teams as compared to record vs non-playoff teams, as well as statistical production vs playoff teams as compared to vs non-playoff teams (note that included in this is GAA. Analyze the average goals his team allows when a defenseman plays, and not simply the defenseman's offensive output in these games). Specifically, a player who plays a majority of his games against stronger teams and has a quality record in these games should be rewarded over players who mainly play against weaker teams.

    Frank-J.-Selke Trophy"Awarded to the player who exhibited outstanding sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability."

    Awarded to @rocketrasared RW Blainville-Boisbriand Armada, 0 PIM's, 67 Pts, 24 Goals, +16 +/-, 15-8-0 record

    Criteria:

    1) Stats. The only statistical criteria that can be applied to the Frank-J.-Selke Trophy specifically are PIMS (low is good) . Also note that the Frank-J.-Selke Trophy is generally awarded to higher profile players in terms of offensive production. Combining the specific criteria with this general overarching pattern should narrow down the field of potential candidates quite easily.


    2) Conduct. The main role conduct can serve in determining the Frank-J.-Selke Trophy nominees/winner is fairly simple. If you act like a douchebag on the website, you're not winning this award. If you're generally/widely recognized within the community as a nuisance or negative influence, you aren't winning this award.


    3) Special circumstances. The league reserves the right to ignore the above criteria for the Frank-J.-Selke Trophy and hand out the award in situations where a player performs an action or actions that go above and beyond what is expected of them. This is done at the Commissioner's discretion, and is to be used in only the most deserving and rare of circumstances.

    Ron-Lapointe Trophy"Awarded to the GM adjudged to have contributed the most to his team's success."

    Awarded to @superguy1999 C Halifax Mooseheads, Personal record 19-4-1, Team Record 53-15-4, 91 Pts, +47 +/-, 39 Goals, 61.2% FO%

    Criteria:

    -Best performing GM, team must have made playoffs, team must have posted a record above .500


    Maurice-Filion Trophy"Awarded to the Owner adjudged to have contributed the most to his team's success."

    Awarded to @bEaRcAt_GaMiNg RW Halifax Mooseheads, Personal record 19-4-1, Team Record 53-15-4, 80 pts, 38 goals, +44 +/-

    Criteria:

    -Best performing owner, team must have made playoffs, team must have posted a record above .500

    President Cup“Awarded to the QMJHL playoff champions.”

    Awarded to @St. Johns Seadogs


    Jean-Rougeau Trophy “Awarded to the team who finished the regular season with the most points.”

    Awarded to @Parihse RW, St. Johns Seadogs, 11-0-1, 35 pts, 18 goals, 17 asst, 16 +/-

    The Guy Lafleur Trophy may very well be the most difficult award to judge in a league like ours. Many factors must be considered other than what initially meets the eye. All of the following must be considered when determining those who should be nominated for the Player of the year, in no particular order:

    Awarded to @Xeazyklllx G for the Niagara Ice Dogs [35-3-1. 89% Save Percentage. 1.43 GAA. 6 SO]

    Max Kaminsky Trophy"Awarded to the defenseman who demonstrates throughout the season the greatest all-round ability in the position."

    Awarded to @JRGreaterThan LD for the Peterborough Petes [18-1-5. 50 Points. 5 G 45 A. +47. 41 Goals Allowed]

    Criteria:
    1) Production in relation to peers. It is very important to note, however, that the Max Kaminsky Trophy is not the "best offensive defenseman" award. Many other factors are at play here, and statistical production is only one part of this. It is, however, still an important part. Let it be noted that GAA for defensemen (that is, the average goals allowed in games the defenseman played in throughout the season) is to be examined and evaluated on at least an equal footing with the defenseman's offensive production.

    2) Individual record. In a league where players don't get to play every game in a season, individual record becomes a very important and telling statistic.

    OHL Goaltending Award"Awarded to the league's top goaltender."

    Emms Family Award"Awarded to the league's most outstanding rookie player."

    William Hanley Trophy"Awarded to the player who exhibited outstanding sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability."

    Awarded to @scrowe21 Center for the Sarnia Sting 24 games played, 53 pys, 25 G, 28 A, +/- 17, 4pim

    Criteria:
    1) Stats. The only statistical criteria that can be applied to theWilliam Hanley Trophy specifically are PIMS (low is good) and hits (low is good). Also note that the William Hanley Trophy is generally awarded to higher profile players in terms of offensive production. Combining the specific criteria with this general overarching pattern should narrow down the field of potential candidates quite easily.

    2) Conduct. The main role conduct can serve in determining the William Hanley Trophy nominees/winner is fairly simple. If you act like a douchebag on the website, you're not winning this award. If you're generally/widely recognized within the community as a nuisance or negative influence, you aren't winning this award.

    3) Special circumstances. The league reserves the right to ignore the above criteria for the William Hanley Trophy and hand out the award in situations where a player performs an action or actions that go above and beyond what is expected of them. This is done at the Commissioner's discretion, and is to be used in only the most deserving and rare of circumstances.

    WHL AWARDS

    Four Broncos Memorial Trophy -"Awarded to the Whl's most valuable player."

    Awarded to @gcampbell13 C for the Vancouver Giants [21-3-0. 102 Points. 31 G 71A. +62]


    Criteria:
    The Four Broncos Memorial Trophy may very well be the most difficult award to judge in a league like ours. Many factors must be considered other than what initially meets the eye. All of the following must be considered when determining those who should be nominated for the Player of the year, in no particular order:

    1) Production in relation to peers. It goes without saying that players who produce more statistically are generally the most valuable to their teams. This can be based off Points, Goals, Gaa, Win/Loss record. Some times a Goalie can be a big reason a team excels and mudt be consider as well.

    2)Individual record. In a league where players don't get to play every game in a season, individual record becomes a very important and telling statistic. At the end of the day it's about winning, and to be considered for Player of the year you should be posting at minimum a respectable record.

    3) Strength of schedule. In a league where managers (and players, to a certain extent), are able to choose who they play against, it is important to consider strength of opposition when determining individual awards. The main things to examine here are record vs playoff teams as compared to record vs non-playoff teams, as well as statistical production vs playoff teams as compared to vs non-playoff teams. Specifically, a player who plays a majority of his games against stronger teams and has a quality record in these games should be rewarded over players who mainly play against weaker teams.

    4) Team performance. It is extremely rare for a player on a below average (non-playoff) team to win Player of the Year . It shouldn't be cut and dry that your team has to make the playoffs to be considered, but note that it should take a rather herculean effort from a player on a non-playoff team to win/be considered for the Four Broncos Memorial Trophy. Examples of this are players on losing teams that display a winning record, significantly better individual production than the rest of their team, all while playing against top quality competition throughout the season. Cases of this happening should be VERY few and far between.

    5) Position. It is extremely rare for a non-forward to win the Four Broncos Memorial Trophy but not unheard of, especially in the modern day CHL. This obviously isn't the real CHL, but similar reasons for this still apply. For a defenseman or goalie to win/be considered for Player Of The Year, they would need to put up a seasonal performance that significantly stands out among the peers at their position, along with stacking up in the gauntlet of all other listed criteria.

    6) Perceived individual skill. Players who are widely recognized to be more skilled at the game should be given a slight leg up over players who have more of a, for lack of a better term, "fluky" season. This should only be considered in situations where the other criteria does not provide a clear winner. It's a simple fact that the superstars of the league win the Four Broncos Memorial Trophy 99% of the time.




    Jim Piggott Memorial Trophy -"Awarded to the league's most outstanding rookie player."

    Awarded to @FreeZ-o-R LW for the Vancouver Giants [19-4-0. 76 Points. 35 G 41A. +38]


    Criteria:
    For the purposes of this award, rookies are defined as players who have not played more than 8 games in a prior season in the CHL. Apart from this restriction, the evaluation for this award will be identical to that of the Jim Piggott Memorial Trophy.



    Del Wilson Memorial Trophy -"Awarded to the league's top goaltender."

    Awarded to@qwikfinger G for the Vancouver Giants [27-5-0. 86.1% Save Percentage. 2.23 GAA. 5 SO]

    Criteria:
    1) Production in relation to peers. It goes without saying that goaltenders with high SV%, low GAA, and the most shutouts are generally the "best" in the league. In particular, SV% should be weighted slightly more than GAA when analyzing stats. Also compare how a goalie did in comparison to the other goalie(s) on his team throughout the season. This gives some extra insight into how truly outstanding a goalie's performance was.

    2) Individual record. In a league where goalies don't get to play every game in a season, individual record becomes a very important and telling statistic. At the end of the day it's about winning, and to be considered for the Del Wilson Memorial Trophy you should be posting at minimum a respectable record. Also note that to be eligible for Goalie Of The Year you need to have played the most goalie games on your team. You can't be judged as the best goalie in the league if you weren't even judged as the best goalie on your team. It's preferable for goalies to have gotten a brunt of the workload throughout the season as opposed to an average 5/4 split, but this is not mandatory for consideration.

    3) Linemates. This is mainly to note that a goalie should not be significantly punished during consideration simply for playing behind a talented team. In the real Whl, goalies frequently win the Del Wilson Memorial Trophy despite playing on teams filled with star players. On the flip side of this, goalies should not significantly benefit during consideration simply for playing on a below average team.

    4) Strength of schedule. In a league where managers (and players, to a certain extent), are able to choose who they play against, it is important to consider strength of opposition when determining individual awards. The main things to examine here are record vs playoff teams as compared to record vs non-playoff teams, as well as statistical production vs playoff teams as compared to vs non-playoff teams. Specifically, a goalie who plays a majority of his games against stronger teams and has a quality record in these games should be rewarded over players who mainly play against weaker teams.

    As far as individual stats are concerned, it is expected that goalies will allow less goals against weaker teams. Goalies should only be downgraded in this area if they allow a significant and disproportionate amount of goals in games against playoff teams. In especially tight cases between goalies, also consider evaluating the individual lineups that they face throughout the season. Subjectively quantify teams' 1st/2nd/3rd lines, and examine how many of each the goalies have played against throughout the season, in combination with playoff/non playoff.



    Bill Hunter Memorial Trophy -"Awarded to the defenseman who demonstrates throughout the season the greatest all-round ability in the position."

    Awarded to@TBennz LD for the Vancouver Giants [20-3-0. 33 Points. 2 G 31A. +58. 42 Goals Allowed]

    Criteria:
    1) Production in relation to peers. It is very important to note, however, that the Bill Hunter Memorial Trophy is not the "best offensive defenseman" award. Many other factors are at play here, and statistical production is only one part of this. It is, however, still an important part. Let it be noted that GAA for defensemen (that is, the average goals allowed in games the defenseman played in throughout the season) is to be examined and evaluated on at least an equal footing with the defenseman's offensive production.

    2) Individual record. In a league where players don't get to play every game in a season, individual record becomes a very important and telling statistic. At the end of the day it's about winning, and to be considered for Bill Hunter Memorial Trophy you should be posting at minimum a respectable record.

    3) Linemates. This is mainly to note that a player should not be significantly punished during consideration simply for playing with a talented line. In the real WHL, players frequently win the Bill Hunter Memorial Trophy despite playing alongside other superstar caliber players. On the flip side of this, players should not significantly benefit during consideration simply for playing on a below average team or with below average linemates.

    4) Strength of schedule. In a league where managers (and players, to a certain extent), are able to choose who they play against, it is important to consider strength of opposition when determining individual awards. The main things to examine here are record vs playoff teams as compared to record vs non-playoff teams, as well as statistical production vs playoff teams as compared to vs non-playoff teams (note that included in this is GAA. Analyze the average goals his team allows when a defenseman plays, and not simply the defenseman's offensive output in these games). Specifically, a player who plays a majority of his games against stronger teams and has a quality record in these games should be rewarded over players who mainly play against weaker teams.

    As far as individual stats are concerned, it is expected that players will get more points (and allow less goals) against weaker teams. Players should only be downgraded in this area if they acquire a significant and disproportionate amount of their points (or allow a significant and disproportionately low amount of goals) in games against non-playoff teams. In especially tight cases between players, also consider evaluating the individual lineups that players face throughout the season. Subjectively quantify teams' 1st/2nd/3rd lines, and examine how many of each the players have played against throughout the season, in combination with playoff/non playoff



    Bob Clarke Trophy -"Awarded to the top scorer in the regular season."

    Awarded to@gcampbell13 C for the Vancouver Giants [21-3-0. 102 Points. 31 G 71A. +62]

    Criteria:

    1) Individual record. In a league where players don't get to play every game in a season, individual record becomes a very important and telling statistic. At the end of the day it's about winning, and to be considered for The Bob Clarke Trophy you should be posting at minimum a respectable record.
    2) Strength of schedule. In a league where managers (and players, to a certain extent), are able to choose who they play against, it is important to consider strength of opposition when determining individual awards. The main things to examine here are record vs playoff teams as compared to record vs non-playoff teams, as well as statistical production vs playoff teams as compared to vs non-playoff teams. Specifically, a goalie who plays a majority of his games against stronger teams and has a quality record in these games should be rewarded over players who mainly play against weaker teams.

    3) Overall most goals scored is looked at. In the rare case of a tie we will look at most points. If there is still a tie we would look at games played to base out a best points per game.


    Dunc McCallum Memorial Trophy -"Awarded to the Owner adjudged to have contributed the most to his team's success in the playoffs."

    Brad Hornung Trophy-"Awarded to the player who exhibited outstanding sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability."

    Awarded to@I__Zanetti__IRD for the Vancouver Giants [15-6-1. 15 Points. 2G 13A. +34. 50 Goals Allowed]

    1) Stats. The only statistical criteria that can be applied to the Brad Hornung Trophy specifically are PIMS (low is good) and hits (low is good).
