Le Mat Trophy
The Le Mat Trophy (Swedish: Le Mat-pokalen, "Le Mat Cup") is the trophy awarded to Swedish champions in ice hockey, which since 1976 has been the winners of the SHL playoffs.
The Le Mat is the oldest trophy competed for by professional athletes in Sweden. The trophy was donated by the founding father of ice hockey in Sweden, Raoul Le Mat, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. in 1926. Since then, the silver cup has been modified and features now a lid with two crossed ice hockey sticks and an oak base. The cup is 20.5 inches (52 cm) high and weighs 118 ounces (3.34 kg).
