[[Image:|center|125px]]

Established 1988-89 ECHL season
Current holder Cincinnati Cyclones
Awarded to theECHL team with the most points in the regular season

The Henry Brabham Cup is an award presented by the ECHL to the team which finishes with the most points in the league during the regular season. The Brabham Cup has been awarded 20 times to 16 different teams since first being awarded in 1989.[1] The most recent recipients of the trophy were the Cincinnati Cyclones who finished the 2007-08 season with 55 wins and 115 points.[2]

HistoryEdit

The trophy was introduced during the league's inaugural season in 1988 by the league's Board of Governors and was named after ECHL founding father and first Erie Panthers owner, Henry Brabham. [1] While only two of all the Brabham Cup winners have gone on to win the Kelly Cup in their respective years, it remains the most likely position to produce the cup winner, because the Brabham Cup winner is guaranteed home-ice advantage in all rounds of the Kelly Cup playoffs, provided the team advances to each round.

Only four teams, the Knoxville Cherokees, Louisiana IceGators, Toledo Storm, and Wheeling Thunderbirds have won the Brabham Cup on multiple occasions, each with two. However, only the Thunderbirds remain in the ECHL, having changed their name to the Wheeling Nailers before the start of the 1995-96 season.
