Stanley Cup® To Appear At Stingrays' Opening Night

The South Carolina Stingrays have announced that one of the most iconic trophies in sports, the Stanley Cup®, will appear at the team’s opening night game to begin the 2018-19 season on Saturday, October 20. The team plans to celebrate the first championship in franchise history for their National Hockey League (NHL®) affiliate Washington Capitals during the game with special events and opportunities to take a photo with the famous trophy.

The Capitals claimed the organization’s first-ever Stanley Cup® Championship on June 8 with a defeat of the Vegas Golden Knights at T Mobile Arena to win the final series in five games. Former Stingrays players Pheonix Copley, Philipp Grubauer, Braden Holtby and Nathan Walker were all members of the championship team.

The oldest trophy in North American professional sports, the Stanley Cup® trophy’s origins date back to 1892 and it has been awarded to the Stanley Cup® Playoffs Champion since 1926. It is unique because it includes the engraved names of players and team personnel of its champions on bands around the base of the trophy. Periodically, bands are retired to make room for new ones. The retired bands are displayed at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.

The group of four Rays alumni joined forward Rich Peverley as the only five former South Carolina players to win the Stanley Cup® Championship. Peverley captured the trophy in 2011 with the Boston Bruins.

More details about the night will be announced soon including where fans can go to take photos with the trophies, a season ticket holder event and more.

Season tickets are on sale now! For more information or to purchase, contact the Stingrays by phone at 843-744-2248 or visit 3300 W. Montague Ave. Suite A-200 during business hours.For all the latest news and updates, follow the Stingrays on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.
