Best Answer

The Stanley Cup was named after Lord Stanley of Preston, the then Governor General Of Canada

The Stanley Cup is a trophy awarded to the champion team of the National Hockey League. In 1892 , Lord Stanley gave a trophy to be awarded to the top amateur hockey team in Canada. By the early 1900's, it was being played for by professional leagues in Canada. Since 1926 no other league has played for the Cup but the NHL, and while ostensibly "looked after" by a Board of Trustees, it is for all intents and purposes the property of the NHL and awarded each year to the playoff champions of the NHL.
