The Stanley Cup has been described as the “holy grail” of hockey and the single most recognized symbol of hockey excellence in the world.
The Stanley Cup will be on public view for the final three days at RBC Fan Fest on the PNE Grounds during the 2006 IIHF World Junior Championship.
By special arrangement, the Stanley Cup will be transported from the Hockey Hall of Fame (HHOF) in Toronto to the PNE Forum by Phil Pritchard, Vice President of Hockey Operations of the HHOF.
The unveiling is scheduled to occur at 2:30 PM on Monday, January 2 in a special RBC Fan Fest “Hockey Talk” presentation entitled “Hangin’ with the Stanley Cup” in which Mr. Pritchard will answer questions about the Cup and its travels.
After the session, the Stanley Cup will remain on display at the Forum through January 4. Visitors to RBC Fan Fest are invited to take pictures at no charge of the Stanley Cup and other major hockey trophies on display including the Memorial Cup, 2004 Men’s Worlds, 2004 Women’s Worlds and 2005 World Junior Trophies.
