The Kharlamov Trophy is an NHL award given to the most valuable Russian NHL player. It was named after the Soviet ice hockey player Valeri Kharlamov.

The Trophy was established by Sovetsky Sport in 2002.[1] Presentation of the award and the ceremony are held by Sovetsky Sport every summer in Moscow after the conclusion of the NHL playoffs, and is covered by Russian national and international media.

It is voted on by all active Russian NHL players. Although Russian players first entered the NHL in large numbers in the late 1980s, the trophy was first awarded in 2003. Detroit's Sergei Fedorov was the first recipient of the award.
