stanley cup history

The Stanley Cup is not the most important cup in a hockey player’s life. That honor goes to his protective cup. However, the Stanley Cup is the most sought-after, seeing as how you can buy a protective cup at pretty any sporing goods store in the world. And next to the actual Holy Grail, or maybe some hacky joke about Dolly Parton, the Stanley Cup is probably the most famous cup of all time.

Of course, no person or thing gets that famous and important without accruing some serious mileage and genuine history, and over the years the Cup has definitely had its share of crazy adventures and mishaps. So today we’re going to share some of that history and mileage with you. When we’re through, you’ll see it’s really no wonder everybody wants to hoist is so badly.
