The Metropolitan Amateur Hockey League was a hockey league that existed around New York City from 1933-1952. Previously, the Manhattan Amateur Hockey League had operated from 1928-1933.

The Lester Patrick Trophy was usually given to the winner of the MAHL playoffs. At first the playoffs were a two round championship, the first round was a one game playoff, with the second round sometimes a two game total goals series, other times best-of-three.

From 1938 through World War II, the trophy was sometimes presented to the regular season winner in the absence of playoffs. After the war a four team round robin series, with a final, was played. The trophy was given to the league by Lester Patrick, the New York Rangers head coach.
