THE OVERALL STANDINGS - The Only Count That Matters

New, comments









Here are the current totals of Stanley Cup wins per franchise since the trophy was first awarded in the 1892-92 season.

In 113 years, 32 different teams clubs have won the trophy. You may notice that the overall totals do not quite add up. The reason for this, is that in the trophy's inaugural years, it was a challange cup. Once a team had won it, they often had to defend it. Most did, but upon occasion, it resulted in two teams winning it in the same season.

Below the first 32 teams listing is a total of cups won per city in the trophy's history.

24 - Montreal Canadiens
11 - Toronto Maple Leafs
10 - Detroit Red Wings
7 - Ottawa Senators*
5 - Edmonton Oilers
5 - Boston Bruins
5 - Montreal Victorias
4 - New York Rangers
4 - New York Islanders
4 - Ottawa Silver Seven

** both the St. Pats and Arenas would evolve in the Toronto Maple Leafs
*** In 1918-19 no Stanley Cup was awarded. The Seattle Metopolitans were tied with the Montreal Canadiens, with each team having won two games and tying one ( 0-0 ). The death of the Canadiens Joe Hall (due to the Spanish Influenza flu), cancelled the final. After five games, Seattle had outscored Montreal 19-10.
