Le Mat Trophy
The Le Mat is the oldest trophy competed for by professional athletes in Sweden. The trophy was donated by the founding father of ice hockey in Sweden, Raoul Le Mat, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. in 1926. Since then, the silver cup has been modified and features now a lid with two crossed ice hockey sticks and an oak base. The cup is 20.5 inches (52 cm) high and weighs 118 ounces (3.34 kg).
The cup used today is a copy of the original trophy due to the theft of the original in the beginning of the 1950s. The current cup is an exact copy of the original and was made by Juvelerare Markström in Uppsala, Sweden, right after the theft.
