Most Stanley Cups By Teams


Here is the Stanley Cup Winners list that means more than any of the other categories. The goal for every NHL team at the beginning of the season is to be Stanley Cup Champions, and these are all the teams that have accomplished that. To date there have been 30 separate teams that have won the Cup, and six of those have been from the city of Montreal, including the Canadiens and their predecessors.

This complete list of Stanley Cup winning teams is divided into two categories. The first group are all the Stanley Cup Champions from the NHL, or professional era beginning in 1915 when the trophy was primarily awarded to pro teams. These teams were from varying professional leagues that gradually disappeared, leaving the Cup officially in the hand of the NHL beginning in 1927.  The second group are all the Cup winners from 1893 through 1914 when the Cup was awarded to amateur teams.
