Stanley Cup is Coming to Fairbanks

Dan Bross, KUAC – Fairbanks

The Stanley Cup is coming to Fairbanks.  The National Hockey league Championship Trophy visit scheduled for next month is being organized by the Fairbanks Hockey Hall of Fame.  Hall of Fame president Randy Zarnke says the Stanley Cup, has only come to Alaska twice, both times displaying in Anchorage.

Zarnke says Fairbanks has been trying to arrange a Stanley Cup visit through the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto for the last five years.  He says locals were finally able to work a deal because the Cup was scheduled to be in Whitehorse. Zarnke says the plan calls for a community photo with the Stanley Cup on Sunday Feb. 13 at Fairbanks Big Dipper Ice Arena.
