How would you like to skate with former HAB Patrice Brisebois & get a photo snapped with the Stanley Cup?
You can have that opportunity tomorrow between 10:30 AM – 2 PM!
Victoria Skating Rink was the rink that housed the first ever official indoor hockey game in the world and it’s also where the Stanley Cup was presented for the very first time, yet sadly only its memory remains. In addition, the actual site where the rink once stood will soon be transformed into condos.
Kraft Hockeyville is launching its 2014 season by creating an outdoor skating rink, for one day only, at this historic site, to celebrate the heritage of local hockey and encourage continued investment in our local rinks.
Bring your skates and join Kraft Hockeyville, former Montreal Canadien Patrice Brisebois and welcome back the Stanley Cup on this special one-day skating rink in the heart of downtown Montreal. Patrice will also be available to discuss his recent nomination to the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Hall of Fame.
*THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC*
