Lord Stanley of Preston

The original Stanley Cup bowl
 

125 Years of the Birth of Hockey's Greatest Treasure

On March 18, 1892, at a dinner banquet held in Ottawa, Ontario, Lord Stanley of Preston, Canada's sixth Governor General, delivered a statement in which he committed to donate a trophy that would be competed for by Canadian hockey teams. Later that year, a punchbowl was purchased on his behalf from G.R. Collis & Company in London, England, for 10 guineas, or approximately $50.

On one side of the bowl is engraved 'From Stanley of Preston' along with the Stanley family crest. On the opposite side of the bowl is engraved the name Lord Stanley proposed for the trophy: the Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup. Although curiously, the trophy was called the Stanley Cup from the moment it arrived on Canadian soil.

Little did Lord Stanley realize just how powerful and magical his gift to hockey would prove to be, and the impact that the iconic silver trophy would have on so many lives for years to come.

The Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup, the original Stanley Cup bowl, makes its permanent home inside Lord Stanley's Vault, exclusively at the Hockey Hall of Fame. Come celebrate hockey's greatest tradition with Lord Stanley's gift to the game.
