HARRY “HAP” HOLMES MEMORIAL AWARD

holmes_200.jpgNamed after Harry “Hap” Holmes, a prominent figure in early professional hockey and a standout goaltender in his era, the Harry “Hap” Holmes Memorial Award is presented in recognition of outstanding goaltending.

From 1948 to 1971, the award was presented to the goaltender with the lowest goals-against average who appeared in at least 50 percent of his team’s regular-season games. Since 1972, it has honored the goaltenders (appearing in a minimum of 25 games) on the team with the lowest goals-against average at the end of the season.

Holmes was posthumously elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1972.
