The Stanley Cup, the oldest trophy competed for by professional athletes in North America, was donated in 1892 by Sir Frederick Arthur Stanley, Lord Stanley of Preston and son of the Earl of Derby. He purchased the trophy for 10 Guineas to be presented to "the championship hockey club of the Dominion of Canada” and first team awarded the Stanley Cup was the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association in 1893. The National Hockey Association took possession of the Stanley Cup in 1910 and beginning in 1926, only NHL teams have competed for the prized trophy.
The Stanley CupⓇis the championship trophy awarded annually to the National Hockey League (NHL) playoff winner. Since the 1914-15 season, the Cup has been won a combined 95 times by 18 active NHL teams and five defunct teams. The current Stanley Cup, topped with a copy of the original bowl, is made of a silver and nickel alloy: it has a height of 35.25 inches and weighs 34.5 pounds.
