The Dan Snyder Memorial Trophy is awarded each year to an Ontario Hockey League player who makes a notable humanitarian contribution within his community. Each year the OHL awards a player that has demonstrated outstanding qualities as a positive role model in the community with the OHL Humanitarian Award.

The OHL Humanitarian of the Year award was renamed in honour of former Owen Sound Platers captain Dan Snyder, who died from injuries sustained in an automobile accident in October 2003.[1]

"This is a fitting tribute to a young man who epitomized what it means to be a good citizen," said OHL Commissioner David Branch. "He was a role model on the ice where he consistently overachieved. More importantly, Dan was a role model off the ice for the young people in the Owen Sound community and everywhere he went. He is sorely missed by the entire Ontario Hockey League and we are truly honoured to be able to recognize him each year with the OHL Humanitarian of the Year award."
