Mark Napier is a two-time Stanley Cup winner, and one of the NHL greats in Kenora for Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada this week.

He implores everyone to get involved and enjoy the activities.

“For the people of Kenora just enjoy it, enjoy the time,” Napier says. “To have Ron MacLean and Don Cherry here all day Saturday. Come up and talk to us, that's what we're here for. Ask some questions, get some autographs.”

Napier won a Stanley Cup with the Montreal Canadians in 1979, and another with the Edmonton Oilers in 1985.

Currently, he serves as president of the NHL Alumni Association.

Napier played in the alumni game at the Rec Centre last night, and he's looking forward to a school visit at Pope John Paul II School this morning.

“Those are really neat. The kids, they don't know who us old guys are, but the nice thing is with the internet they can google us and find out,” Napier says, accompanied with a chuckle. “So we have a lot of fun with it, and to bring the Stanley Cup is pretty special. The kids are pretty excited and usually well behaved. And they usually ask us questions, which are actually really well thought out.”

Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada takes place throughout the day tomorrow at the Harbourfront beginning at 8 a.m., with the national broadcast starting at 11 a.m.
