STAN­LEY CUP TRIB­UTE

Where Ottawa - - HERE & NOW -

In 1892, Lord Stan­ley awarded the coun­try’s top am­a­teur hockey club with a tro­phy — a chal­ice that has since be­come a Cana­dian holy grail. A cap­i­tal birthday party for the na­tional ob­ses­sion’s 125th will in­clude a trib­ute con­cert (MARCH 17) at the Cana­dian Tire Cen­tre, a ground-break­ing cer­e­mony for a new Stan­ley Cup mon­u­ment on Sparks Street (MARCH 18), and a meet-and-greet with the Cup and hockey leg­ends at Lans­downe’s Aberdeen Pav­il­ion (MARCH 17). But, first, the puck drops on March 10 with a hockey his­tory ex­hibit at the Cana­dian Mu­seum of His­tory (p. 54).
