Scotiabank is bringing the Stanley Cup to the Surrey Sport and Leisure Complex this weekend as a part of their Canadian community engagement initiative.
Surrey is home to a number of NHL players and Stanley Cup winners including two-time winner Colin Fraser (currently with the LA Kings).
The iconic trophy, the Holy Grail of the rink, will be polished and on display from 12:00pm until 5:00pm on Sunday, February 24, 2013. The event will also feature historic artifacts from the Hockey Hall of Fame, interactive games and giveaways, and the opportunity to have a photo taken with the Stanley Cup.
In case you’re wondering if it’s bad luck to touch the cup, I actually asked the Hockey Hall of Fame about protocol (and superstition) in this case during the Vancouver 2010 Olympics:
“Whether seeing the Stanley Cup while it’s on the road, as you did during the Olympics, or visiting it at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, guests can touch it, hug it, kiss and get their picture taken with it. What is only reserved for players who have won it is hoisting over your head. So unless your name is on it, you can’t lift it.”
Bring the family, bring a camera, and bring your hockey spirit to the Surrey Sport and Leisure Complex (110-16555 Fraser Highway) on Sunday for a hockey-filled afternoon. Follow Scotiabank Hockey Club on Facebook and Twitter for more hockey events, giveaways, and special offers.
