Stanley Cup Engraving

†Joe Klukay name was removed by mistake from new version of 1947 Toronto's engraving created in 1957–58. There is more than enough room to add his name. He played in finals and qualified to be on the cup.

When the Replica Cup was created in 1992–93 a new mistake happened. Robert J. Galloway's name was misspelled as P.J. Galloway with "P" instead of a "R". His name is spelled correctly the first 2 times 1947 Toronto members were engraved.
