Names on the Stanley Cup

A refresher course from Jamie Fitzpatrick at About.com, on how to get one’s name on the Stanley Cup:

The Stanley Cup is the only trophy in pro sport that bears the names of players, coaches, management and staff from the winning teams.

Prior to 1977 only players who had completed the Stanley Cup playoffs were eligible. Today, players appearing in 41 regular-season games or one Stanley Cup Final game for the championship team have their names engraved on the Cup. The NHL makes exceptions for players who do not meet the standard because of injury or other extenuating circumstances.

That’s why Jiri Slegr was the luckiest guy in the NHL in the spring of 2002.
