|General Manager of the Year Award|
|Current holder(s)||Mike Gillis|
|Awarded to the||top National Hockey League General Manager|
The General Manager of the Year Award is awarded annually to the top National Hockey League general manager as voted by "a 40-member panel that included all 30 general managers, five NHL executives and five media members." The current title holder is Mike Gillis of the Vancouver Canucks.
In 1993, Brian Burke, who was at the time working for the league, suggested the award. However, would not be created until 2010. It was presented during the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals at the annual GM meeting, rather than during the Awards ceremony with the majority of the other NHL Awards. The next year, it was announced that the award would be included in the full ceremony.
