The Marcel-Robert trophy is given to the player holding the best combination of outstanding sports and academic achievements.
The Marcel-Robert trophy is certainly one of the most prestigious honour. A player is selected not only because of his talents as a hockey player, but also for his academic performances and his personality as a whole. The winner of the Marcel-Robert trophy will also represent the QMJHL at the CHL level and earn an opportunity to take home the Guy Lafleur scholarship given annually by Molson Breweries.
The emphasis will be on academic achievements: academic results should be distinctly above average.
