The first time it was left somewhere happened before the NHL had even been founded. After a night of drunken celebrations following their January 1905 Stanley Cup victory, some players from the Ottawa Hockey Club, known as the Silver Seven, thought it’d be a good idea to see if one of them could kick the then-small Cup over Ottawa’s Rideau Canal. Turns out they couldn’t. It landed right in it, which luckily was frozen at the time, not that it mattered much because they left it there anyway. The Cup was retrieved the following day after the buzz wore off.
