The Fred J. Hume Award is a Vancouver Canucks team award given out at the end of each NHL season to the team's unsung hero, as decided by the Vancouver Canucks Booster Club. It was first given out after the Canucks' inaugural season in 1970–71 and was named after former Mayor of Vancouver Fred J. Hume, who was also owner of the Canucks while they were in the Western Hockey League and an active campaigner to bring the NHL to Vancouver.

In the history of the trophy, the most any one Canucks player has won the award is twice, accomplished by Hilliard Graves (1977 and 1978), Rich Sutter (1988 and 1989), Steve Bozek (1990 and 1991), and Martin Gelinas (1995 and 1996).
