Stanley Cup engraving

  • New York Rangers included two smaller rings on the Stanley Cup. Due to the size of the first ring, no playoff score were included. On the Second ring they honored Lester Patrick (See 1934 Chicago Black Hawks for the wording.) Lester Patrick's name was put on the Stanley Cup twice in 1934.
  • Rangers did not include President William Carey's name on the Stanley Cup. He is only President of a Stanley Cup winning team left off the Cup, since the engraving of winning members became an annual tradition in 1924.
