The F.G. "Teddy" Oke Trophy is awarded to the regular season champion of the American Hockey League's East Division. It is the oldest trophy awarded by the AHL, but it passed through two leagues previously. It is one of the oldest trophies in professional hockey. It is named after the owner of the Kitchener team in the Canadian Professional Hockey League (CPHL).

The 1928–29 CPHL champions, Windsor Bulldogs took the trophy with them, when they defected to the International Hockey League (IHL) in 1929–30. The Oke Trophy remained the championship trophy of the IHL until 1936 when the league joined with the Canadian-American Hockey League into the International American Hockey League (I-AHL), the precursor of the AHL.

The four teams in the west division of the new I-AHL, were all from the old IHL league. They continued the trophy's tradition in the new league when it was awarded to the west division champions, Syracuse Stars.

The Oke trophy remained the west division championship until the 1952–53 season, when it became the trophy for the regular season champions of the American Hockey League, while the Calder Cup remained the AHL championship trophy. The 1960–61 Oke Trophy champions the Springfield Indians took the trophy with them, winning the east division in 1961–62. The newly christened John D. Chick Trophy replaced the Oke Trophy as the west division's trophy the same year. The AHL realigned divisions several times since 1961–62, but since then, the Oke Trophy has followed the previous winning team to the new division.
