Factoids source: Stanley Cup: 120 Years of Hockey Supremacy by Eric Zweig financial support from the Government of Canada, Ottawa Senators, National Hockey League and City of Ottawa Bruins won their second Stanley Cup title, defeating Toronto Maple Leafs in five games in the final round. Year is the first in which the final round of Stanley Cup playoffs is a best-of-Seven affair and the last time Cup champion had its playoff game score engrave on Cup. Facing New York Rangers in the semi-final round, Bruins forward Mel Hill scored three overtime goals, earning him the nickname Sudden Death. Carolina Hurricanes follow long and winding journey to Stanley Cup glory. The franchise was formed way back in 1971 as the New England Whalers of the World Hockey Association. The Club joined the National Hockey League in 1979, when four teams from that fledging League merged with the NHL. Once in the NHL, team became known as Hartford Whalers, until it relocated to Raleigh, North Carolina in 1997 and assumed its current name. Hockey legends Gordie Howe, Bobby Hull and Dave Keon all played their final NHL games with the franchise. The Blackhawks won their first Stanley Cup title, beating the Detroit Red Wings in four games in a best-of-five final-round series. Harold Mush March scores the Cup-winning goal during the second overtime period of game four. Blackhawks goalie Chuck Gardiner would become the only goaltender to be recognized in the Stanley Cup as his team captain. Gardiner would die in the off-season, victim of a brain hemorrhage brought on by a tonsil infection that had plagued him throughout the season. The Blackhawks won their third Stanley Cup title, and their first since 1938, defeating the Detroit Red Wings in six games in the final round of playoffs. In knocking off Montreal Canadiens in the semi-final round, Blackhawks ended Montreal's record-setting five-season run as Cup champions. Chicago waited 49 years for its next Cup win. The 1961 Cup victory by the Blackhawks is the only time during the Original Six era in which the Cup was not claimed by one of the Montreal Canadiens, Detroit Red Wings or Toronto Maple Leafs. Turn out Original Six is more like the Big Three. The Blackhawks defeated the Boston Bruins in Six games in the final round of playoffs to win the Stanley Cup for the second time in four seasons. The showdown between the Blackhawks and Bruins marks the first time ever that teams have played each other in a Cup finala, remarkably rare occurrence for two teams that have been in the NHL for more than 80 years. Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane wins Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP. The Colorado Avalanche franchise has a surprisingly long history. The team was founded back in 1972 as Quebec Nordiques, one of 12 Original teams of the World Hockey Association.

Stanley Cup

In the 1891-92 OTTAWA Hockey Club season of play, OTTAWA Hockey Club won all of its games in Amateur Hockey Association of Canada play, except for the final game. The final game result means AHAC championship was given to Montreal Hockey Club, despite OTTAWA having defeated Montreal three times to Montreal's one victory. At the team's season-ending banquet held at Russell House Hotel in OTTAWA, club was given a letter by Lord Stanley. Lord Stanley and his family, residents of OTTAWA during his term, were fans of sport, participated in sport, and were regular attendees at OTTAWA games. Lord Stanley announced in a letter that he was to donate the cup to be given to the season's champions, designated champion of Canada. He also expressed his disappointment with the current series method of play, suggesting a round-robin format, with the eventual champion given to the team with the best record, after which designated challenge games could be play, to contest holder of trophy. The cup took place under the care of trustees, who would decide which teams would qualify to play for the trophy. The cup was first given to Montreal Hockey Club in 1893, which won the 1893 AHAC season, held under new round-robin rules. The Trophy in following years will be contested by amateur teams from all over Canada. Starting in 1908, professionals were allowed to compete in teams for the Stanley Cup, and the New Allan Cup was donated to be given to the Amateur champion, while the Stanley Cup would be contested by teams without restriction. Beginning in 1910, Cup was contested by teams of the National Hockey Association and Pacific Coast Hockey Association until the mid-1920s. After folding of PCHA, Stanley Cup has since been contested only by teams from the NHL. Stanley Cup trustees had sole control of the trophy until 1914 when they decided to let leagues choose champions and challengers. Over time, as trustees die, new trustees have been name. It is an honorary role, as the National Hockey League has been solely responsible for and has controlled trophy since 1947. The Original Cup, and the trophy used in its likeness today, are cared for by, and housed at, Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Young Architects in Competitions

As the Canadian capital of Ottawa prepares for multiple big anniversaries next year, city's historic spark Street Mall may soon have a shiny new chalice resembling the original Hockey Stanley Cup. Design by Montreal-base Architecture team Covit / Nguyen / NORR, Chalice is the winning proposal of Lord Stanley's Gift Public Art Competition, which seeks best design for a Public Art Monument dedicated to the legacy of Lord Stanley and the cultural significance of Hockey in Canada. The winning team was selected out of eight finalists. A groundbreaking ceremony for the monument is planned for March 18 2017, marking the 125 anniversary of Lord Stanley's original Gift. The Monument will then be donated to the City of Ottawa and officially unveiled in December 2017, in time for Canada's 150 anniversary celebration and centennial anniversary of the National Hockey League. As ode to the more modest original design of the Stanley Cup, winning proposal is 3. The 45-meter chalice is fabricated from silver aluminum bands. Locate near the National War Memorial, chalice will be built atop a white paved hockey rink with embedded stainless steel lines resembling ice-skate marks and 39 granite discs engraved with the names of Stanley Cup winners from 1893 to 2017. People passing by the sculpture can also sit on 1. 4-meter diameter hockey puck bench. The winning design was selected by the Board of non-profit Lord Stanleys Gift Memorial Monument Inc., Who received advice from the Competition jury. Chair by George Hunter, jury comprise of notable Canadian figures in Public Art, culture, history, and, of course, Hockey. We believe that this design magnifies and abstracts the Stanley Cups ' original, modest form, giving it a glittering and iconic presence overlooking Confederation Square, place of the Stanley Cups ' birth, state George Hunter.

THE MAN BEHIND THE GIFT

On Saturday, October 28, hockey fans of all stripes will gather in Canadas capital City for the unveiling of the Monument to mark the 125 anniversary of the Stanley Cup, just a wrist shot away from the birthplace of hockeys Holy Grail. It was on March 18 1892, at a celebratory dinner for OTTAWA Hockey Club held at Russell House Hotel, that Lord Stanleys aide, Lord Kilcoursie, announced plans to donate a trophy. Attendees will include fo r mer NHL players, vice-regals, League executives, politicians and prominent business people, who will listen to speeches and celebrate the conclusion of the multi-year journey to erect Monument to the championship trophy of the World premier League. But noticeably absent will be a man named Paul Kitchen. Paul was note local hockey historian, unofficial historian of OTTAWA Senators for a time, and author of Win, Tie or Wrangle: Inside Story of Old OTTAWA Senators 1883-1935. He was among the earliest members of the Society for International Hockey Research and became its second president, position he held between 1996 and 2000. In 1997, he organized and erected at his expense granite pedestal and bronze plaque at the former site of Deys Skating Rink, where OTTAWA Hockey Club won its first Stanley Cup in 1903. When vandals destroyed it in 2008, he spearheaded an initiative to replace it with a new monument completely made of granite. Paul then shifted his focus to the Monument marking the gift of the Stanley Cup. He founded Lord Stanley Memorial Monument Inc. In 2010, non-profit charitable organization formed to create the Monument and donate it to the City of OTTAWA. He recruited prominent board members such as OTTAWA Senators co-founder Bruce Firestone, IIHF executive Murray Costello and former Senators executives Jeff Kyle and Cyril Leeder. Eventually, former Governor General David Johnston would become the group patron, and help raise the project profile further. Paul met with NHL executives, federal, provincial and municipal government officials, and potential corporate donors in an effort to secure a suitable location and fund the project. He did not live to see the project officially announced on March 18 2016, 124 anniversary of Lord Kilcoursies's announcement, once necessary funding had been received from the NHL, OTTAWA Senators Hockey Club, Department of Canadian Heritage and the City of OTTAWA. He didnt get to pose with the original Stanley Cup bowl inspiration for Monument, which made a rare appearance outside the vault at the Hockey Hall of Fame when it was brought to OTTAWA for the unveiling ceremony of eight designs chosen as finalists. Neither does he get to contribute to selection of the winning design or attend a posh private function hosted by the Governor General at Rideau Hall for organizers and sponsors. Im certainly not suggesting that Paul and his contributions to the project have been forgotten or ignore.

ROSTER

OTTAWA Prime Minister Justin Trudeau predicts the Monument in OTTAWA to the 125 anniversary of the Stanley Cup will become a major attraction in the national capital. In an interview Saturday on Hockey Night in Canada, Trudeau said the Lord Stanley Gift Monument will be part of what people want to see when they visit OTTAWA. The monument was formally unveiled on Saturday at a ceremony attended by OTTAWA Mayor Jim Watson and local MP David McGuinty and members of the hockey community. The federal government provides $2. 15 million toward cost of erecting the Monument to Stanley Cup, which was given in 1892 as a Gift by Lord Stanley, Canadas sixth Governor General. The Unveiling also coincides with Canada 150 celebrations and the 100 anniversary of the National Hockey League. In Hockey Night in Canada interview that was do in advance of the Saturday unveiling, Trudeau, wearing No. 4 Jean Beliveau, Montreal Canadiens jersey, says few symbols bring Canada together like the Stanley Cup. It has weight of symbolism and strength of binding our country together that very few material symbols do, Trudeau say. Trudeau also said it would be great if there were more NHL teams in Canada, but he added it was not the federal government's role to push hard on professional sports. Trudeau said his 10-year-old son Xavier has started playing hockey and loves it, so the Prime Minister said he is spending more time in arenas, but he never developed roots in hockey when he was a boy. Much more like a skiing family than a hockey family, My dad wasnt big fan of arenas early in the morning on weekends, Trudeau joke.
