Originally called CCHA Goaltender of the Year (until 2004–05), the "Best Goaltender" was first awarded in 2001 and every year thereafter until 2013 when the CCHA was dissolved as a consequence of the Big Ten Conference forming its men's ice hockey conference.[2]

Only one player (Ryan Miller) managed to receive the award more than once, winning Goaltender of the Year in the first two years it was conferred.
