Just thought I'd take some time to share with you guys some interesting facts surrounding the most storied pro sports trophy in North America.


Did you know...that Jean Beliveau's name appears more time on the cup than any other person's? His name appears 17 times, 10 as a player and 7 as a coaching staff member.


Did you know...Henri Richard has won the most cups as an NHL player? He won the cup 11 times, all of them with the Montreal Canadiens.


Did you know...If you are an NHL player, it is considered bad luck to touch the cup before you've won it?


Did you know...there are three official Stanley Cups? The 1892 "original bowl" is kept at the Hockey Hall of Fame, the 1963 "Presentation Cup" is the Cup awarded to the players and staff upon winning the Finals, and the 1993 "Replica Cup" is the cup that is permanently on display at the HHOF in Toronto.

Did you know...the current Cup is made of a nickel and silver alloy whereas the original bowl was made of silver?

Did you know...When Lord Stanley purchased the original cup he paid $48.67 USD which is equivalent to $1,295 in today's money?
