    The Stanley Cup gets dented!

    The Stanley Cup is sporting a new dent:
    Stanley Cup dented after falling in Newfoundland - CTV News
    The link has a few videos as well.

    I got to hold the cup back in 2003 thanks to a family friend that won it and the bowl was pretty dented back then. Also, I couldn't hold it by the bowl as the bowl was too loose (had to hold it by its neck) from getting passed around from player to player.

    I hope (like a couple of the commenters said) that it's a replica and not the real one that got dented. It's quite a shock to scroll down and see the great big dent in the rim of a cup that should be round....

    It is the real one. The replica and original bowl remain at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. The "real one" is actually known as the authenticated cup. It's the one that gets passed around from player to player and is presented to the winning team.

    Talking to my husband, he says the same and that it gets dented all the time, and they fix it all the time. I don't know if I feel better or worse about that.

    It sees it's fair share of action. Dents on the rim are known to happen.
