Stanley Cup engraving

Eddie Gerard's name was misspelled when the ring was engraved as F. GERAD (MGR) instead of E. GERARD (MGR)on the 2nd verision of the ring created in 1969. The mistake was repeated on the Replica Cup created in 1992–93.

  • After the series win, a new ring was added directly underneath the original bowl of the Cup with the words "Won/By Montreal 'Maroons' 1925–26". In addition players and Non-players names were added to the trophy.
  • † 3 players who qualified were left off the Stanley Cup, because they did not play in the playoffs.
