NHL Presidents' Trophy Winners

Awarded since 1986 to team with best regular-season record

NHL.com @NHL

An annual award given to the team that finishes the regular season with the best overall record. The winner receives $350,000, to be split between team personnel and the players.

The Presidents' Trophy was presented to the NHL by the NHL Board of Governors in 1985-86. The Detroit Red Wings (six) are the only team to win the trophy more than three times.

If two or more teams are tied in points after the regular season, the first tiebreaker is the team that has the most regulation/overtime wins.
