The Colorado Avalanche have already dented the Stanley Cup. 

Just minutes after they won their first championship in two decades, the Stanley Cup slipped out of Nicolas Aube-Kubel's hands and hit the ice. 

Here's a look at what the Stanley Cup looks like now:

Hey, when a team has a lot of players who have never won a championship, accidents like this are bound to happen.

Fans/media had some fun making jokes at the Avs' expense on Sunday night.

The Avalanche finished off a dominant championship run on Sunday night when they dethroned the Tampa Bay Lightning in six games. Colorado went 16-4 during its run to the Stanley Cup.

Next up for the Avalanche will be a parade in downtown Denver sometime this week with their fans. 

Hopefully, the Stanley Cup will have its small repairs done so everyone can see it in peak form.
