  • Pat McReavy was misspelled PAT McCREAVY with an extra "C" on new version of the cup created during the 1957–58 season. Pat McReavy was often misspelled as Pat McCreavy on some team pictures with the Boston Bruins. When the Replica Cup was created in 1992–93, Pat McReavy name was misspelled as Pat McCeavy with "C" instead of a "R".
