TRIVIA – STANLEY CUP WINNERS

by Ron Spence

The Stanley Cup has collected names from 1893 until 1908. It is the oldest trophy competed for by professional athletes.

The first teams had only 9 or 10 on their rosters, but recent teams carry three times that many players.

The Stanley Cup is also unique because it also includes the names of the coaches, management, and club staff.

So, the trivia question is: who is the person who has had his name engraved on the Stanley Cup the greatest number of times?

The first Stanley Cup Champions – 1893- The Montreal Hockey Club

The answer isn’t Henri Richard, who has had his name engraved 11 times – but only as a player.

It is his former teammate, Jean Beliveau, who has had his name engraved on the Cup 17 times – 10 times as a player and 7 as management.
