Stanley Cup engraving

  • Initially, the engraving for 1936 and 1937 included each every members position, and playoff scores. Hec Kilrea's position was listed as 'General Utility' instead of 'Left Wing'. When the Cup was redone during 1957–58 season all player positions and playoff scores for both years were left off the cup.
  • *2 players Pete Kelly, Howard Mackie were included on the original ring in 1937. Their names are not on the newer ring, now retired to the Hockey Hall of Fame. Carl Mattson (Ass't Trainer) was not included on the Cup in 1936, 1937. There is more than enough room for 3 three members to have been engraved on the ring.
  • Ebbie Goodfellow served as Captain, because Doug Young missed most of the season with an injury.
