From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Bobby Smith Trophy is awarded annually to the OHL Scholastic Player of the Year who best combines high standards of play and academic excellence.

The trophy, which honours Bobby Smith, a former Ottawa 67's star, is symbolic of the high standard of excellence that Smith displayed on the ice, as well as in the classroom, during his outstanding junior career. Each team's nominee for the award becomes a member of the OHL Scholastic Team of the Year.

The Ontario Hockey League Scholastic Player of the Year is selected by a committee of OHL Educational Consultants who assess each nominee's academic achievements, and by Frank Bonello, Director of National Hockey League Central Scouting, who evaluates each nominee's hockey ability.

Both awards are independent of on-ice performance, unlike the Bobby Smith Trophy which combines performance with academics.
