#MMC100 Trophy Tour Stop 4: Vancouver, British Columbia
The Canadian Hockey League’s 100th Mastercard Memorial Cup celebrations continued this past week in Vancouver, British Columbia, the fourth stop on a season long tour visiting 17 CHL communities in eight different provinces.
The Western Hockey League’s Giants were tour hosts on the fourth leg and only stop in beautiful British Columbia. The Giants hosted the 2007 Mastercard Memorial Cup in Vancouver and won the title on home ice powered by an MVP performance by current NHL star Milan Lucic. Two other stars from the championship team were present over the weekend taking part in the celebration and reuniting with the trophy including goaltender Tyson Sexsmith and forward Kenndal McArdle.
Prior to Saturday’s game, the team brought the Memorial Cup to a special event at Langley’s Museum of Canadian Flight where author Dr. Murray Howe, the son of legendary hockey hero Gordie Howe, met with pilots and fans signing copies of his new book ‘Nine Lessons I Learned From My Father’.
