The Stanley Cup Visits The Canadian International School
Hockey fans at Canadian International School of Hong Kong (CDNIS) got to live out one of their biggest dreams as the Stanley Cup spent the morning at the school. More than 2,000 students, staff and parents got up close and personal with hockey’s holy grail as the most famous trophy in sports was the star attraction at various school assemblies. The Cup was accompanied by its keeper, Phil Pritchard and a member of the 2001 Stanley Cup champion Colorado Avalanche, Alex Tanguay. Today’s visit was the Cup’s first stop in Hong Kong, and is part of the NHL’s tour of the region, which will also include exhibition games in Shenzhen and Shanghai between the Calgary Flames and Boston Bruins. Head of School David Baird said, “Hockey is a game that unites. And for those students that were in the assemblies this morning, they have walked away with the idea of a team camaraderie and what this trophy means to Canadians, and also what this trophy means to those who all play together on a team.
