The Stanley Cup, one of the most revered trophies in all of sports, has been the ultimate symbol of excellence in the National Hockey League (NHL) since 1927. With a rich history spanning over a century, the Stanley Cup has been awarded to the league’s champion every year, with the exception of 2005.

Prior to its current format, the Cup was awarded to the winner of the NHL/NHA vs. PCHA/WCHL/WHL championship series from 1915 to 1926, and before that, it was presented to the winner of the Challenge Cup in Canada from 1893 to 1914.
