The Stanley Cup has been treated like royalty this week.
This morning, the Cup made a stop at Pope John Paul II School along with Mike Richards, Wendel Clark, Bryan Trottier, Darcy Tucker and Mark Napier.
Phyillis Eikre, KCDSB director of education, attempted to capture the emotion surrounding the event.
“It's beyond exciting for the Kenora Catholic District School Board to be able to host the Stanley Cup,” Eikre said. “Not only to be able to host it, to be able to involve all of our elementary schools all at the same time in seeing the cup. It's so exciting.”
SMB student Julia Mitchell was among those lucky enough to be in attendance. She noted what her favourite part of the event was.
“It was probably Mike [Richards] walking down the aisle for the first time,” Mitchell said.
Saints girls and boys hockey teams got an up-close chance to check out the Cup outside after the event.
