10 Things you never knew about the Stanley Cup Itâ€™s one of the most famous trophies in the world and the most prized in all of Canada................The Stanley Cup is also one other thing â€“ the oldest and longest awarded championship symbol of any in North America. It was first presented in 1893, and with the exception of the 1919 flu epidemic that stopped the playoffs and the recent lockout, has been awarded every year since. Here are the 10 things you may not have known about the Cup, courtesy of the N.H.L.: 1) It originally cost just $48.67 to make and was created in Sheffield, England. 2) When a players hoists it over his head, itâ€™s not light. The Cup weighs about 35 lbs. â€“ and thatâ€™s without the champagne. 3) Those who win it are guaranteed immortality. Itâ€™s the only trophy in pro sports that has the names of all the winning coaches, players, management and team staff engraved on it. But the printing may be small. It takes 13 years to fill up one ring with the names of all the winners. 4) What else is written on there? Youâ€™ll need to squint to see it, but the Cup has two phrases on the upper bowl. One says "Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup" and the other side "From Stanley Of Preston". 5) Only one name has ever been corrected on the Cup. â€œAdam Deadmarchâ€ was later changed to â€œAdam Deadmarshâ€. But Jacques Plante the holds the record for being wronged. Heâ€™s been listed as â€œJackâ€ â€œJockoâ€ and â€œPlantâ€ among five errors. Bob Gainey is called â€œGainyâ€. Ted Kennedy came out as â€œKennedyyâ€. The Islanders came out as â€œThe Ilandersâ€. Boston was listed as â€œBqstqnâ€. And the Leafs were called the â€œLaesâ€ in 1962/63. Fans would love to have the chance to see the name back there, no matter how itâ€™s spelled. 6) Lord Stanleyâ€™s mug is well traveled. It logged more than 400,000 miles - and that was in just five seasons. 7) The man after who itâ€™s named, Lord Stanley, never actually saw a hockey game in his lifetime. He simply lent his name to the trophy. 8) The Stanley Cup on display in Torontoâ€™s Hockey Hall of Fame is a duplicate and never goes anywhere. 9) What happens to the team members who win the big prize? They each get to take it home for one day to share the moment with family, friends and neighbours. 10) How do they determine whose name gets engraved? Originally, a player needed at least 41 games played with the club or one game played in the Stanley Cup Finals. But a 1994 alteration meant a player could appeal to the Commissioner to have his name added if certain circumstances prevented him from taking part in the season, but he deserved to be there.
