Colorado Avalanche dent Stanley Cup in on-ice celebration

The Colorado Avalanche won the 2022 Stanley Cup and quickly made an impression on the iconic trophy.

TAMPA, Fla. — It took the Colorado Avalanche 21 years to win another Stanley Cup and just minutes to break it.

The iconic sports trophy has been dropped, scratched and dented before, but it has never been dropped during an ice presentation. Until Nicolas Aube-Kubel ran towards the team picture and lost his balance.

“I don’t even know if they’ve had it five minutes and there’s already a dent at the bottom,” said Philip Pritchard, vice president, resource center and curator of the Hockey Hall of Fame.

“It’s the first time it’s happened on the ice,” Pritchard said.

Unlike many North American sports trophies, the Stanley Cup is a single trophy presented to the winning team each year. Each player on the winning team also gets to spend a day with the trophy.
