Think Outside the Penalty Box with Custom Hockey Medals

With origins dating all the way back to versions of field hockey in the 1700s, the modern game of ice hockey has a long-standing history. The current version of the game got its start in Montreal and quickly spread in popularity amongst many cold weather countries. Today, ice hockey is so prevalent that there’s even a team housed in the heart of the Nevada desert, Las Vegas. In addition to that, a number of youth leagues and amateur leagues have sprung up across the country. Hockey has proven to be a great workout and a sport that combines the grace and balance of ice skating with the physicality of full contact sports. With the popularity of hockey spreading, the need for sports medals has been steadily increasing.

Unique Trophy History Meets Innovative Sports Medal Future

One of the many things that sets professional ice hockey apart from other major American sports is the presentation and delivery of the league trophy. The Stanley Cup, named after Lord Stanley of Preston, is presented to the team that wins the National Hockey League. Unlike the trophies awarded in the NBA and NFL, the Stanley Cup isn’t given to a team so much as loaned to them for a short span of time. The team that wins the cup gets to hold on to it during the offseason and the first few months of the following regular season. At that point, it’s sent back to the league office to await being delivered to the next winning team. There isn’t a new trophy made each year to honor the winners. 

That’s not to say that the Stanley Cup isn’t personalized at all. The names of a select few people from the winning team are engraved on the bottommost ring of the trophy. When that ring runs out of space to accommodate new names, the uppermost ring (which is also the oldest) gets removed and a new ring is added. This stops the trophy, which already weighs in at a sturdy 34.5 pounds, from becoming too heavy. 

While the tradition of the Stanley Cup is something that should never be taken away from the sport, here at Signature Coins, we also don’t think it’s the only possible method of rewarding a winner. With custom hockey medals, each member of your championship team will have a keepsake from their spectacular season. No one member of the team will have to wonder why their name was left off of the trophy when they all get their own special medal.

Hockey Medals Are For More Than Championships

Winning your league takes a lot of hard work, dedicatio, and teamwork, and it’s the sort of thing that fills all athletes with an abundance of pride. In a lot of ways, the reward at the end of that long journey, whether it be a custom sports medal or a large trophy, represents all of the small steps a team has taken along the way to accomplish the feat. But one of the difficulties of going through a long season is having to wait until the end to be recognized for all of the hard work that’s being done. And even worse, for teams that fall short of being able to hoist that trophy, the teamwork and dedication they’ve worked on all year can feel underappreciated. 

The great thing about hockey medals in lieu of trophies is that the occasions for them to be earned encompass more than just winning the entire league. Players can earn medals for an outstanding game performance, or for hitting incremental goals, or for outstanding moments of teamwork and sportsmanship. Making use of hockey medals is an easy way to reward your team for their hard work at every step of the way while never eclipsing the goal of taking home the ultimate prize.
