    After Lord Stanley of Preston was appointed by Queen Victoria as Governor General of Canada on June 11, 1888, he and his family became highly enthusiastic about ice hockey.[3] Stanley was first exposed to the game at Montreal's 1889 Winter Carnival, where he saw the Montreal Victorias play the Montreal Hockey Club.[4] The Montreal Gazette reported that he "expressed his great delight with the game of hockey and the expertise of the players".[3] During that time, organized ice hockey in Canada was still in its infancy and only Montreal and Ottawa had anything resembling leagues.[3]

    Stanley's entire family became active in ice hockey. Two of his sons, Arthur and Algernon, formed a new team called the Ottawa Rideau Hall Rebels.[5] Arthur also played a key role in the formation of what later became known as the Ontario Hockey Association (OHA), and would go on to be the founder of ice hockey in Great Britain.[6] Arthur and Algernon persuaded their father to donate a trophy to be "an outward and visible sign of the hockey championship".[5] Stanley sent the following message to the victory celebration held on March 18, 1892, at Ottawa's Russell Hotel for the three-time champion Ottawa Hockey Club

    Well, I can tell you NAS, first a search engine is irrelevant in the scope of this thread, and the internet is a place where one person can talk to himself and pretend they are 2 people - publicly - rather than in the sanctity of their own bathroom.
