Calder Cup

calder cup american hockey league ahlThe Calder Cup has been hoisted by the American Hockey League’s playoff champion since 1936-37. The Hershey Bears have won the Calder more than any other AHL team with eleven victories. Hershey is the last team to win back-to-back Calder Trophies, taking the Cup in 2008-09 and 2009-10. Eight times, a team has won in consecutives seasons. The Springfield Indians are the only team to win three years in a row.

The first ever winner in 1936-37 was the Syracuse Stars. The Stars beat the Philadelphia Ramblers in a best of five series to take the championship. Despite a history of AHL hockey in Syracuse, this is the only time a team from that city has won the Calder Cup.
