Isn't it the law in Canada that the Stanley Cup must be awarded every season?

Update:

Isn't something to do the original Deed of Gift and some beer league Toronto lawyers trying to win the Cup during the last lockout?

    Canadian teams have not won a Championship in the NHL for a long time.

    I am a sports fan who is a fan of 2 sports radio shows. They talk about sports topics and they take phone calls from passionate sports fans. If you are interested to call their sports radio shows than feel free. Call their morning show, and the afternoon show at 704-332-0173. It is Monday to Friday, 7am ET to 9:55am ET. Also, 3pm ET to 6:55pm ET. They would talk about any sports topics of your choice, and also if you have questions in sports or anything in general, feel free to call them.

    You could call in another sports radio show Monday to Friday at 12pm ET to 12:55pm ET, 502-571-1080. They would talk about any sports topics of your choice, and also if you have questions in sports or anything in general, feel free to call them.

    No. The Cup was not awarded in 2005 after the 2004-05 NHL season was cancelled due to the owners locking out the players because there was no labor contract.

    The Cup's trustees signed an agreement with the NHL in 1947, giving the league the exclusive right to award the Cup. That agreement was challenged in Ontario court during the lockout, but play was resumed for the 2005-06 season. The result of that challenge is that the Cup's trustees could, if they decide to, have non-NHL teams play for the Cup if a future NHL season is not played. It is not a law in that it is not binding on the Cup's trustees.

    where were you when the leaque locked out the players and didn't have playoffs in 2004/05?

    This isn't even the first time a pandemic stopped the cup.  1919, no cup because of Spanish flu.

    If there were such a law, they probably would have added a clause so that it wouldn't have been 26+ years since a Canadian team won it.

    No, there is no such law in Canada.

  • No, there's nothing in our constitution about this. It wasn't awarded in 1918 due to an Influenza outbreak that impacted one of the teams, and it wasn't awarded in 2005 due to a lockout by the owners.

      As it turns out, the situation is that it is up to the Cup trustees decide what to do with the Cup if the NHL declines to play for it.

    Not that I'm aware of.  It wasn't awarded during the lockout of the 2004-2005 cancelled season, nor was it awarded during the Spanish Flu Pandemic when the series between the Montreal Canadiens and the Seattle Metropolitans was cancelled.
