The Stanley Cup® Returns Home During March Break
The Governor General David Johnston will welcome the iconic trophy back to Rideau Hall, along with 100 Greatest NHL® Players Mike Bossy, Paul Coffey, Dave Keon, Frank Mahovlich, Bernie Parent and Bryan Trottier. The public will be able to have their picture taken inside the residence, beneath the official portrait of Lord Stanley, Canada’s 6th governor general and donator of the Stanley Cup®.
Visitors are also invited to lace up their skates and hit the ice on Rideau Hall’s refrigerated outdoor skating rink.
