The Stanley Cup was named after Lord Stanley of Preston, the then Governor General Of CanadaThe 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.
The history of the National Hockey League begins with the demise of its predecessor league, the National Hockey Association (NHA), in 1917. After unsuccessfully resolving disputes with Eddie Livingstone, owner of the Toronto Blueshirts, executives of the three other NHA franchises suspended the NHA, and formed the National Hockey League (NHL), replacing the Livingstone team with a temporary team in Toronto, the Arenas.

The most prestigious club championship in the world is the Stanley Cup, champion of the National Hockey League. However winners of the Stanley Cup are very rarely referred to as "World Champions." Other ice hockey leagues including Elitserien (known in English as the Swedish Elite League), SM-liga (Finnish league), Nationalliga A (Swiss League), the Kontinental Hockey League (Russia and satellite states) also designate a league champion, not a world champion. If your talking international competition, Ice Hockey has two main tournaments: An annual World Championship and the Olympic games (Every 4 years). The current world champion is the Czech Republic and the current Olympic champion is Canada.
