1917: The Seattle Metropolitans of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association beat the National Hockey Association's Montreal Canadiens three games to one to become the first U.S. team to win the Stanley Cup. The PCHA and NHA reached a gentlemen's agreement in 1915 that their respective champions would face each other for the Stanley Cup, originally rewarded to amateur champions in Canada. Since 1926, the cup has gone to National Hockey League's champion.
