Stanley Cup Coming to U of G

August 23, 2006 - Campus Bulletin

Hockey fans will have a chance to see the National Hockey League’s top prize at U of G’s Gryphs Sports Lounge Aug. 31 from noon to 3 p.m.

The Stanley Cup is being brought to campus by Tony MacDonald, a scout for the Carolina Hurricanes since 1994. The Hurricanes won the cup after defeating the Edmonton Oilers in Game 7 of the NHL championship finals in June, marking the team’s first Stanley Cup victory.

“This trophy is the most difficult to win in professional sports, and I invite the community to come out and enjoy it while it’s here,” said MacDonald, whose wife, Ruth, is an accounts receivable clerk for U of G’s Hospitality Services.

In addition, voluntary donations to Guelph’s SuperWalk for Parkinson’s, to be held Sept. 9, will be accepted at this time, he said.
