For the first time, the Stanley Cup will be in Smithers.
Former NHL-er and Smithers hometown boy Joe Watson helped to bring it here.
“The cup is magical,” he says. “It is probably the most renowned cup in all of sports. It has traveled the world, mostly Europe, Australia, it’s been all over the place. They get so many requests for the cup.”
The cup is coming to get the community excited for the upcoming Smithers Celebrity Golf Tournament. While it couldn’t be here for the actual charity tournament in August, organizers say this is a good lead up to the event.
The cup will be at the new arena in Smithers from 11-4 tomorrow.
