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

Originally called CCHA Goaltender of the Year (until 2004–05), the "Best Goaltender" was first awarded in 2001 and every year thereafter until 2013 when the CCHA was dissolved as a consequence of the Big Ten Conference forming its men's ice hockey conference.[2]

Only one player (Ryan Miller) managed to received the award more than once, winning Goaltender of the Year in the first two years it was conferred.
