Stanley Cup on target for Aug. 21

Trophy is coming to town



The Stanley Cup, oldest trophy competed for by professional athletic teams in North America, is coming to the Ketchum and Sun Valley area Sunday, Aug. 21 as part of the Boston Bruins triumphant tour with the coveted Cup trophy. Bruins assistant equipment manager Jim “Beets” Johnson, a native of Virginia, Minn., has arranged for his “day” with the Cup for Aug. 21 and is bringing it to his adopted hometown of Ketchum. More of the visit will be published in the Aug. 17 issue of the Express. Here, Johnson holds the Stanley Cup in the Bruins locker room, which he maintained in tiptop shape throughout this year’s NHL finals won by the Bruins over the Vancouver Canucks.
