Best Answer

The Montreal Canadians won the Cup in 1916 but they were not a member of the NHL as the league wasn't founded until the 1917/18 season. The first NHL champions were the Toronto team known as the Arenas. Since the Cup wasn't sole property of the NHL at that time, the Toronto team actually had to beat a team from Vancouver to claim the Stanley Cup.

What NHL team was the first team to win the Stanley cup?

The NHL was formed in 1917 and played its first season in 1917/18. The winner of the Stanley Cup was the Toronto team simply known as the Arenas. Two things should be noted here: 1. The Cup was not solely an NHL trophy at that time.The NHL champions, the Toronto team, actually had to win against a team from Vancouver which was not a member of the NHL. 2. The Montreal Canadiens actually won the Cup in 1916 before the NHL was founded so they are not considered to be the first NHL team to win the Cup.
