The Richard F. Canning Trophy is presented annually to the team that advances to the AHL's Calder Cup Finals as the playoff winner of the Eastern Conference. Prior to 1996, it was given to the playoffs champion of the Northern Division/Conference.

The award is named after former AHL President Richard F. Canning, who served in that role from 1958 to 1961. He would serve the AHL in various roles for over five decades.

The current holders of the Canning Trophy are the Syracuse Crunch. The Crunch captured the 2017 Canning trophy by defeating the Providence Bruins in five games in the 2017 AHL Eastern Conference Championship series.
