Did you know that the Stanley Cup was originally commissioned in 1892 as the Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup? The trophy, named for Lord Stanley of Preston, then–Governor General of Canada, awarded it to Canada's top-ranking amateur ice hockey club.
The Stanley Cup is surrounded by numerous legends and traditions, the oldest of which is the celebratory drinking of champagne out of the cup by the winning team. The current Stanley Cup, topped with a copy of the original bowl, is made of a silver and nickel alloy; it has a height of 35.25 inches and weighs 34.5 lb.
