Thanks To Brian Dumoulin, The Stanley Cup Will Visit Maine In August
Of all the major sports trophies, none is more majestic than the heralded Stanley Cup. And until just a couple weeks ago, Lord Stanley's Cup had never visited Maine because of a winning players contribution to a championship team but that will all change in August thanks to Brian Dumoulin.
Dumoulin, a Biddeford native and a NHL rookie this past season, was a major factor in the Pittsburgh Penguins defeating the San Jose Sharks to capture the championship. Dumoulin logged the second most on-ice minutes of any player on the Penguins in the Stanley Cup Finals. He also notched a goal in the series clinching win.
Tradition allows for each member of the championship team to spend one day with the Stanley Cup. Players have chosen to do some strange things on their day with the cup but it is expected that Dumoulin will bring it home to show off to members of his community as well as perfect strangers who want to get up close and personal.
According to the Portland Press Herald, Pete Dumoulin, Brian's father, has said the cup will be visiting Maine on Wednesday, August 3rd. Details on what sort of event surrounding the Stanley Cup have yet to be finalized.
Congratulations once again to Brian Dumoulin and we all look forward to seeing the Stanley Cup right here in Maine!
