The Jari Kurri Trophy
The Jari Kurri Trophy is awarded to the player who is most valuable to his team over the course of the playoffs, as chosen by the Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner.
Best known as Wayne Gretzky's triggerman, Jari Kurri was a formidable player in his own right, and one who stepped up his game in the post-season. In 1985, he tied an NHL record with 19 goals en route to the Oilers' second consecutive Stanley Cup, including three hat-tricks in the conference finals.
Acadia goaltender Braden Holtby captured the 2015-16 Jari Kurri Award as the SICHL Playoff MVP after leading the club to its 4th Continental Cup win. Holtby posted a 16-4-2 record and held a .934 save percentage and 2.12 goals against average. He is the third Golden Bears goaltender to have won the award.
