The 1962 Stanley Cup Final was contested by the defending champion Chicago Black Hawks and the Toronto Maple Leafs who had last appeared in the Final in 1960. The Maple Leafs would win the best-of-seven series four games to two to win the Stanley Cup, their first since 1951.

Paths to the Final[edit]

Toronto defeated the New York Rangers to advance to the finals and Chicago defeated the Montreal Canadiens.

The series[edit]

Stan Mikita broke Gordie Howe's 1955 playoff record of 20 points, finishing with 21, but it was not enough as the Leafs would defeat the Black Hawks. Dave Keon, making his playoff debut, scored two goals and an assist in the Final.[1]
