About the Stanley Cup

The Stanley Cup was crafted out of silver and nickel alloy in Sheffield, England, and presented for the first time in 1893. 

It tips the scales at 35 pounds, stands 3 feet tall, and is named for its first owner, Sir Frederick Arthur Stanley, Lord Stanley of Preston. 

The cup first was awarded to amateur ice hockey champions in Canada, and later to professional ice hockey organizations. The National Hockey League first presented the Stanley Cup as the ultimate prize in 1927.

The trophy has been won 99 times between 1914 and the close of the 2017 NHL season. The Pittsburgh Penguins have won the Stanley Cup in 1991, 1992, 2009, 2016 and 2017.
