The Stanley Cup, Since 1892

The Stanley Cup is named after Lord Stanley of Preston. The Stanley Cup is the championship trophy awarded annually to the National Hockey League (NHL) playoff winner. Overshadowing all other championship trophies in sports, the legend and glory of the Stanley Cup lives in the dreams of hockey players and fans across Canada and around the world. Notably the oldest trophy competed for by professional athletes in North America, the Stanley Cup was donated in 1892 by Canada’s sixth Governor General, Lord Stanley of Preston. He purchased the trophy for 10 Guineas ($50 at that time). The first team ever awarded the Stanley Cup was the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association in 1893.
