holders of the most important hockey trophies
The tradition of fighting for a prestigious hockey trophy dates back to more than 100 years ago. The original Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup was given by Governor General of Canada Lord Frederick Arthur Stanley in 1892.
At first, amateur hockey players have been competing for the cup, since 1909 compete the professional teams. The NHL organisation took over the Cup under its administration in 1926.
After filling the original trophy with the names of the winners engraved, the rings with rosters of hockey players, coaches and managers was added. The Stanley Cup currently weighs over 15 kilograms (34.5 lb).
The first Stanley Cup holders were teams with the most points in the season. Since 1915 are play-off battles taking place.
In this era, the Montreal Canadiens are the most successful team to win a total of 24 times. But since their last success, they have been waiting for the Cup over a quarter of a century.
Very successful were also the Toronto Maple Leafs with 13 win of the Stanley Cup. However, the Canadian team achieved the last success more than 50 years ago.
The best team of recent years are the Pittsburgh Penguins, who have won the Stanley Cup four times since 2008. Since 2019, the newcomer to the SC winners is the St. Louis Blues team.
