No, Mike Richards and Jeff Carter did not take the Stanley Cup to Sea Isle, New Jersey. Well, at least we know for certain Richie didn’t take the Cup there on his day with the greatest trophy in sports. Richards instead took it to his home town of Kenora, Ontario where he took the Cup out onto the water for a little boat trip. But he also pulled a pretty cool move by bringing the Cup to a spot to pay homage to some former winners of the Cup from Kenora. They won it a long, long time ago.
During his whirlwind day with the most iconic trophy in sports, Richards
stopped by a plaque in town honoring the 1907 Kenora Thirstles team
that won the Stanley Cup, making Kenora the smallest town ever to win
the Cup. An early men’s amateur club, the Thistles boasted four
Hall-of-Fame players in Si Griffis, Tom Hooper, Bill McGimsie, and Tom
Phillips and defeated the Montreal Wanderers in a two-game series to
capture the Cup before disbanding later that year.
You can read more about Richie’s day with the Cup here and see the Keeper of the Cup’s photo of him on a boat with it below.
I’d say that’s a pretty solid day with the Cup. If you’re looking for some other interesting reading on players’ day with Lord Stanley’s Cup, check out this piece over at Puck Daddy on “What a player’s day with the Cup tells us about his personality type.“
