MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Hockey fans in the Twin Cities will have a chance to sneak a peek at the sport’s “Holy Grail” on Thursday and Friday.
As is tradition, each player on the Stanley Cup winning team gets to take the famous trophy home for 24 hours, and this is Nick Leddy’s day.
The Eden Prairie native is a member of the Chicago Blackhawks, the team that won the cup last month.
Family spokesman Robb Leer says the trophy is closely watched at all times.
“The first stop is at the Leddy house, where they get some time with it as a private event with their family,” Leer said. “The Cup never goes unescorted.”
