Even though they officially did not win the Cup during this season, the Senators had the words "Ottawa/NHA Champions/1914-15" engraved on the base of the trophy's original bowl. This was similar to the practice prior to the NHA-PCHA agreement when the trophy was officially passed on to the winner of the league championship of the previous Cup champion's league. The previous Cup winner was the 1913-14 NHA champion Toronto Blueshirts. Toronto Blueshirts were a National Hockey Association team which played in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. ...

After the finals, "Vancouver B.C./1914-15/Defeated Ottawa/3 Straight Games" was added to the Cup. All of the players' names were also engraved inside the bowl along the fluted sides.
