The Eddie Powers Memorial Trophy is awarded every year to the leading point-getter in the OHL. There are currently 11 recipients of the Eddie Powers Trophy still playing in organized professional hockey.
The oldest is Andrew Brunette who won the award in 1992-93 while playing for the Owen Sound Platers. Andrew is currently in the NHL with the Minnesota Wild.
The newest is last year’s recipient, John Tavares. John split the season between the Oshawa Generals and the London Knights. He was, of course, taken first overall by the New York Islanders and is doing his best to be the new leader of that club.
Three of the players still active today won the trophy twice. These are Marc Savard with the Oshawa Generals in 1994-95 and 1996-97; Peter Sarno in 1997-98 with the Windsor Spitfires and in 1998-99 with the Sarnia Sting; Corey Locke with the Ottawa 67’s in 2002-03 and 2003-04.
The 11 players are spread over only 7 of the OHL’s teams. The London Knights claim 4 of the 11 Eddie Powers Memorial Trophy winners, including 4 of the last 5 years.
