Bobby Clarke and Bernie Parent hoisting the Stanley Cup together will also be immortalized in a new statue that will be on display at Xfinity Live when it opens up, according to the Daily News.

When the Spectrum was torn down, we always wondered what happened to the statues of Dr. J, Kate Smith, and Gary Dornhoefer that used to be such a part of the experience of walking into the hallowed arena. Turns out, they’ve been in storage.

They’ll see the light of day once again when Xfinity Live! (formerly known as Philly Live!) opens up down at the sports complex next spring. Not only will the old classic statues be dusted off, there will be a new iconic piece of bronze that will join them.
