- Frank Ryan (Publicity Director) was included on the 1929 and 1941 Stanley Cup pictures, but his name is not engraved on the Stanley Cup.
- Des Smith was engraved as WES SMITH with a "W" instead a "D". This mistake was corrected when the Stanley Cup was redone during the 1957–58 Season.
- 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".
