The Boyle Trophy was awarded as the championship trophy for the men's senior champions of St. John's, Newfoundland  from 1904 to 1971.

Trophy in its' original form

Along with the opening of the Prince's Rink in 1899, the St. John's City League was formed with seven teams in January 1899. From 1900-1902, the winners of the league received the Hunter Hockey Cup. The Victorias won it all three years, earning the trophy permanently.  A new trophy was needed for the league.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Boyle Trophy was donated by Sir Charles Cavendish Boyle, who served as the governor of Newfoundland from 1901 to 1904.  The trophy was originally intended to be an intercolonial competition between Newfoundland and the Canadian Maritime provinces.  This would not come to be and the trophy became the championship trophy for St. John's senior hockey and stayed as such until the senior hockey league collapsed in 1971.  The trophy was in limbo after the league collapsed. And in a move that upset many the trophy became the Newfoundland Provincial Boys 4A High School championship trophy starting with the 1984-85 school year.
