Donate 2018 Stanley Cup Championship Ring
On February 20, 2019, members of the Washington Capitals organization, including captain Alexander Ovechkin and assistant captains Nicklas Backstrom and Brooks Orpik, presented the Hockey Hall of Fame with a 2018 Washington Capitals Stanley Cup Championship ring. The ring will be featured as a part of a special collection celebrating the current and past Stanley Cup champions.
The ring is made of 14-karat white and yellow gold set with diamonds, rubies, and blue sapphires bringing the precious stone weight to an astonishing 10.2 carats. The top features the Capitals logo and is surrounded by 27 pavé-set diamonds, all of which is encircled by 28 custom taper-cut rubies. The three star-shaped rubies set above the logo are inspired by the Washington DC flag, where the stars represent Washington DC, Virginia, and Maryland. An additional 157 diamonds create a cascading waterfall effect down the sides of the ring top. The ring was added to the Hockey Hall of Fame’s Stanley Cup Championship ring collection which includes the first Stanley Cup ring ever presented from 1893.

Hockey in Popular Culture Exhibit

Be it through John Wayne’s portrayal of a hockey player in the 1937 film Idol of the Crowds, the famed The Hockey Sweater book, or the cult classic Slapshot movie, millions of hours have been spent enjoying hockey away from the rink.
Hockey in Popular Culture, a new exhibit in Upper Deck Collectors’ Corner, shines a light on some of the ways the world of hockey has intersected with pop culture throughout the years. This showcase offers a one-of-a-kind glimpse at the way hockey has been depicted in film, music, games, literature and more.

Retired Stanley Cup Band
Placed on Permanent
The Hockey Hall of Fame has placed on display the recently retired Stanley Cup band featuring 12 past Stanley Cup champions from 1954 through to 1965. Sixteen Hockey Hall of Fame Honoured Members (Players) appear on this Stanley Cup band.
This celebrated and historic band joins previously retired bands, the earliest dating back to the 1927-28 season. A new band was added on the bottom row of the Stanley Cup earlier this season to include the engraving of the 2017-2018 champions, the Washington Capitals. The next band to be removed and retired features the 1965-66 to 1977-78 Stanley Cup champions, and will take place in 2030.
Prior to the New York Rangers 1993-94 championship season and with no more space to accommodate the full rosters of future champions, the Stanley Cup Trustees resolved to maintain the profile of the iconic trophy which has witnessed its share of glory since the original bowl was retired along with the upper collar and various shaped barrel bands in 1957 (all of which are on permanent exhibition for hockey fans to view in the Esso Great Hall/Lord Stanley’s Vault at the Hockey Hall of Fame).
