Macgregor Kilpatrick Trophy

The Macgregor Kilpatrick Trophy is presented annually to the AHL team that finishes the regular season with the most points or highest points percentage. The award is named after late former AHL board member Macgregor Kilpatrick.

The award was first presented for the 1997–98 season, the season after Kilpatrick died. Prior to the current trophy, the F. G. "Teddy" Oke Trophy was awarded from 1952–53 to 1960–61 and in 1976–77 to the team which finished first overall in the AHL, though at the time the league only had a single division.
