Bob Clarke Trophy

bob clarke philadelphia flyers 1978-79 o-pee-chee hockey cardThe Bob Clarke Trophy goes annually to the Western Hockey League player with the most points during the regular season. Originally the Brownridge Trophy, it was renamed after to honour Bobby Clarke in 1987.

The award was introduced for the 1966-67 season and Bobby Clarke, then of the Flin Flon Bomber won it in it’s second and third seasons. Clarke, of course, went on to a Hockey Hall of Fame career with the Philadelphia Flyers in the National Hockey League. He was the centrepiece of the infamous Broad Street Bullies in the 1970’s.

In addition to Clarke, three others have won the award twice. Tom Lysiak of the Medicine Hat Tigers won in 1971-72 and 1972-73, Brian Propp of the Brandon Wheat Kings won in 1977-78 and 1978-79 and Rob Brown of the Kamloops Blazers won in 1985-86 and 1986-87. In 1986-87, Brown set the WHL record for most points in a single season with 212, a record that still stands untouched today.

Interestingly, the following year saw NHL greats Joe Sakic and Theo Fleury tie with 160 points. To date, they are the only co-winners of the Bob Clarke Trophy.
