The CCHA Player of the Year was an annual award given out at the conclusion of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association regular season to the best player in the conference as voted by the coaches of each CCHA team.[1]

The Player of the Year was first awarded in 1977 and every year thereafter until 2013 when the CCHA was dissolved as a consequence of the Big Ten forming its men's ice hockey conference.[2]

Two players (Brendan Morrison and Ryan Miller) have received the award two separate times, both doing so in consecutive years.
