5) The NHL has official engravers that put names on the Cup
In it’s 96 year history, only 4 official engravers have existed. There was the original 1948 Stanley Cup designer Carl Poul Peterson, who did it until his death in 1977, father and son duo, Eric and Doug Boffey did it until 1989 and currently Louise St. Jacques, creator of the ’93 replica cup is the official engraver.
The way she does it is she disassembles the rings and puts the ring in a jig. She then engraves each name, one letter at a time a hammer and press. She figures it takes her about half an hour per name, so inscribing an entire winning team usually takes her about 10 hours.
