These are the college hockey teams with the most Stanley Cup winners

Take a look back at the sights and sounds from a historic Frozen Four

When St. Louis Blues winger Zach Sanford lifted the Stanley Cup with his record-breaking team on Wednesday night, he made history, both for his franchise and his alma mater. The former Boston College star helped bring the first Stanley Cup championship to St. Louis, and his win also elevated Boston College to the top of the list of schools with the most Stanley Cups. For the 20th time, an Eagle had his name etched into the heralded trophy. 

Twelve different players have combined for the 20 Boston College championships with Brooks Orpik, Kevin Stevens, Rob Scuderi, Bill Guerin, Doug Brown and Brian Dumoulin each winning the cup twice.
