The hockey season is far from over, but Jets fans have more reasons to rejoice as the Stanley Cup will be coming to Winnipeg Feb. 20.
As a part of Scotiabank’s cross-Canada tour, the final stop of the Celebration of Hockey brings one of the oldest and most famous sporting trophies to the Festival du Voyageur.
The Stanley Cup is a cultural symbol that all Canadians can identify with pride, said Terry Bjornson, Scotiabank’s vice-president for Manitoba and northwest Ontario.
Fans will have an opportunity to see the Stanley Cup from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
"The inaugural season of the Winnipeg Jets is a historic event and long overdue," said Mark Chipman, chairman of True North Sports & Entertainment Limited. "What could be more inspiring for our team and our fans, to host the ultimate prize of hockey's famous Stanley Cup."
