Want to see the Stanley Cup? Prized NHL trophy to be in Grand Forks
GRAND FORKS - A public viewing of the Stanley Cup has been set from noon to 3 p.m. Aug. 12 in the main lobby of Ralph Engelstad Arena.
The National Hockey League trophy will accompany former University of North Dakota men’s hockey captain Matt Greene.
Greene plays for the Los Angeles Kings, which captured a second Stanley Cup championship in three years by defeating the New York Rangers in five games in the Stanley Cup Finals in June.
According to a news release from UND, fans can take photographs with the Cup and take home a free special commemorative flyer. In addition, a video highlight package featuring Greene and the Kings will also run on the video screens in the lobby.
Greene, an assistant captain with the Kings, played at North Dakota 2002-03 through 2004-05. He captained the 2005 Fighting Sioux team to the NCAA Frozen Four championship game in Columbus, Ohio.
In his three years at UND, Greene appeared in 122 games, collecting three goals and 28 assists.
