Description
2001-02 Detroit Red Wings Mini Stanley Cup Championship Trophy – From Front Office Staff Member
Lot #696
This 13” mini Stanley Cup Championship Trophy was acquired directly from a front office staff member. The 76th NHL season in Detroit turned out to be quite a ride. The Wings were pre-season favorites to win the Stanley Cup and they did not disappoint. Ken Holland signed future Hall of Famers Dominik Hasek, Brett Hull and Luc Robitaille to go with his already talented squad including future Hall of Famers Steve Yzerman, Chris Chelios, Sergei Fedorov, Igor Larionov, Nicklas Lidstrom and Brendan Shanahan.



The Wings dominated their way to the President’s Trophy with a 51 Win, 116 Point regular season. After losing the first 2 games of the WCQF to the Canucks, the Wings won 4 straight to take the series 4-2. Next up was the St. Louis Blues, who the Wings beat in the WCSF 4-1. Their toughest test was against their archrivals, the Colorado Avalanche, in the WCF. After falling behind 3 games to 2, the Wings won the final 2 games to take the series 4-3. Then, after a 1st game loss in the SCF, the Wings won 4 straight again to take the Cup 4-1 against the upstart Carolina Hurricanes.

Along with the above-mentioned Hall of Famers, some other names etched to the Cup are owners Mike and Marian Ilitch, Scotty Bowman (who claimed his 9th Stanley Cup to surpass Toe Blake), Pavel Datsyuk (in his rookie season), Kris Draper, Tomas Holmstrom, Kirk Maltby and Darren McCarty.

This gorgeous example has virtually no scuffing or tarnishing. It’s hard to believe there could be a better condition cup out there!
