This Canvas features Lord Stanley`s cup presented to the winner of the NHL Playoffs. The Stanley Cup is officially 125 years old in 2018. The Stanley Cup is the oldest trophy competed for by professional athletes in North America. The first team to be awarded the cup was the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association in 1983. The Montreal Canadiens have won a record 23 Stanley Cups since the formation of the NHL. Currently the Cup consists of a bowl, three tiered bands, a collar, and five barrel or uniform bands. The trophy stands at 35 ¼ inches and weighs 34 ½ pounds. Each year upon presentation of the trophy to the championship team, a summer of celebration begins, as each of the organization’s players and staff enjoy 24 hours with the Cup – a tradition which has no rival in any sport. In its many years of existence, the Stanley Cup has traveled around the world, including stays in Russia, Japan, and Switzerland as well as atop mountain peaks through the Rockies and inside igloos in Canada’s newest territory, Nunavut. The image has been printed on a canvas and is stretched and stapled on the back to a 3/4″ deep wooden frame. Perfect for any home or office and a unique addition to any hockey collection.FINISHED SIZE 14″ x 28″
