The Maurice Richard Trophy is an annual award given to the National Hockey League's top goal scorer by the NHL Board of Governors. 

The winner(s) are determined based on regular-season play. 

The Maurice Richard Trophy, officially unveiled on Jan. 24, 1999, was a gift to the NHL from the Montreal Canadiens to honor the first player in League history to score 50 goals in 50 games, 50 goals in a season and 500 in a career.
