It has become a yearly tradition for the Flyers to announce their team award winners before the final game of every season. There are six awards the team is handing out, so the following is a breakdown of each award (if you don't already know the meaning behind each award) and the winner of each award for this season is followed...
Barry Ashbee Trophy
The Barry Ashbee Trophy is given out to the team's "outstanding defenseman" as determined by a panel vote consisting of local sportscasters and beat writers. The award was first handed out following the 1974-75 season.
This year's winner is Ivan Provorov. He previously won the trophy in 2016-17 and 2019-20.
Bobby Clarke Trophy
The Bobby Clarke Trophy is given to the team's "most valuable player" as determined by a panel vote consisting of local sportscasters and sportswriters. The award was first handed out following the 1984-85 season.
This year's winner is Sean Couturier. It's his third consecutive win for this trophy, and only Eric Lindros (4) and Claude Giroux (5) have more wins.
