This article examines the legal issues that arose when the Stanley Cup was not awarded on year because of a labour dispute between the National Hockey League and its players. I trace the history of the Stanley Cup trust, and describes the events surrounding the 2004-2005 lockout, including a lawsuit over ownership of the Cup. I show that a case study of the Stanley Cup can be a rich resource for teachers of property law and that it can enliven the sometimes dreary subject of property law
