When The Creator made his declaration that the Golden Knights would win the Cup in Six, one of the promises he made was to bring the Stanley Cup to a place he’s called home for a long time, Whitefish, Montana.
It took a while to make it happen, but last week the Keepers of the Cup hopped aboard a chair lift with the Cup in tow and fulfilled another Foley prophecy.
He has one more on the bucket list before his team has to return to the Cup to the NHL though, and it’s one that’s near and dear to his heart.
It’s going to West Point. –The Creator to Hockey News
Every aspect of the Golden Knights has been littered with military motifs, so it only seems right to bring the ultimate prize to the place that inspired so much of what VGK have become.
Ever the military man, The Creator has that visit meticulously planned.
The team is going up on the 24th of January for a day. We’ve got the Stanley Cup for that day and we’re going to take it up to the top of the poop deck and I hope to go up there with Mark Stone and hold the Cup up. They’ll go crazy for it. –The Creator to Hockey News
The team has a back-to-back with the Devils and Islanders the two days before and then have a pair of days off before another back-to-back with the Rangers and Red Wings. In between, they’ll embark on what will likely become one of the most memorable experiences since winning the Cup itself.
Can’t wait to see those photos.
