The Best Fan-Made Stanley Cups

Because most of don’t play professional hockey, we don’t get many chances to interact with the Stanley Cup. However, just because we don’t have rink privileges doesn’t mean we can’t hoist a Stanley Cup that we made by hand over our heads!

Check out some of the best Stanley Cup replicas that true NHL fans (who, incidentally, should probably consider starting a career in sculpture) have made, and don’t miss Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals in a win-or-go-home, Stanley Cup Conference Semifinals Game 7 showdown against the New York Rangers tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET on the NBC Sports Network.
