For the first time in its history, the Stanley Cup had become an international trophy. Over the years, the Stanley Cup has received rude treatment at the hands of some of its holders, and many legends have sprung up around it. One story has it that the trophy was once kicked into the Rideau Canal in Ottawa by a drunken member of a Cup-winning team. The canal, fortunately, was frozen and when the punter sobered up hours later he was able to retrieve the silver cup. In another incident, in 1907, it nearly received a ducking in the Lake of the Woods at the hands of an enraged executive of the Kenora Thistles.

British journalist Ian Gordon, delving into the history of the game in 1937, concluded the idea for hockey originated at Windsor Castle. During the hard winter of 1853 [writes Gordon], Royal family members attending a house party at the country palace, looking for diversion on the frozen lake on the grounds, decided to play a form of field hockey on ice. Sides were chosen, sticks found and a wooden plug or stopper pried from a barrel was used as a puck. While Queen Victoria and her attendants stood by giving encouragement, officers of the Guards skated over the surface trying to score into a goal protected by the Prince Consort.
