The Babe Pratt Trophy is one of six annual Vancouver Canucks team awards. It is given to the best Canucks defenceman, as voted by the fans. The trophy is presented at the last home game of the regular season.
The most recent recipient is Willie Mitchell (both 2008 and 2009).
It was first awarded for the 1972–73 season as the Premier's Trophy, but as of 1989–90, after the untimely death of Hall of Fame defenceman and Canucks goodwill ambassador Babe Pratt, the trophy was renamed in honour of him.
Originally, the trophy's recipient was decided by local media, but is now decided by fan vote.
The most prolific award winners in the trophy's history have been:
- Mattias Ohlund - 4 times (1998, 2000, 2004, 2006)
- Jyrki Lumme - 4 (1992, 1994, 1996, 1997)
- Doug Lidster - 4 (1985, 1986, 1987, 1991)
- Harold Snepsts - 4 (1978, 1979, 1980, 1982)
- Ed Jovanovski - 3 (2001, 2002, 2003)
