The Polar Bear Trophy is an award given out by the Norwegian Ice Hockey Federation to Norwegian ice hockey players who have played a minimum of 50 official games for the Norwegian national ice hockey team.

Counting as official games are games played at the IIHF World Championships, the Winter Olympics and qualification games to the two aforementioned tournaments. Friendly games are not counted.

Referees who have officiated a minimum of 30 games at the Winter Olympics or IIHF World Championship (Elite and Division 1) at either the senior or the junior level are also eligible for reception.

The NIHF board may also award the trophy to builders who have shown an extra ordinary dedication to Norwegian ice hockey.
