Stanley Cup Engraving

  • Terry Sawchuk played seven NHL games in 1950, because Harry Lumley was injured. Sawchuk was not available for the playoffs, because he was helping the AHL Indianapolis Capitols win the Calder Cup. Instead, Harry MacQuestion was called up as the spare goalie for the playoffs. MacQuestion's name was engraved on the Stanley Cup, but he never played in the NHL. MacQuestion was removed from the Stanley Cup when it was redone during 1957–58 season.
  • Detroit did not engrave Gordon Haidy and Doug McKay on the Stanley Cup, even though they each played one playoff game and qualified to be on the Cup.
