It has been 10,000 DAYS since a hockey team from Canada has won the Stanley Cup

Yes you read that right.

It has now been TEN THOUSAND days since the last time a Canadian team has won Lord Stanley’s Cup.

On June 9th, 1993, the Montreal Canadiens beat the Los Angeles Kings in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Captain Guy Carbonneau raised the Cup for his team following the end of regulation.

That was the last time that the Cup was raised by a team based in the country of Canada.

10,000 days or 27.397 years to be precisely.

If all teams had an equal probability of winning the Cup each year, this timeline would have a 0.128% chance of happening.

How many more seasons do you think it’ll take until a Canadian team finally wins the Cup again and which team will it be?

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
