STANLEY CUP: "STOVEPIPE CUP," National Hockey League
The Stanley Cup was first awarded in 1893 to the Montreal Hockey Club, the top amateur team in Canada. The Cup did not belong exclusively to the NHL until 1926. The original Cup had much smaller rings than the ones you see today. Due to its shape, it was known as the Stovepipe Cup.
