As the St. Louis Blues don’t have many Michigan ties, the Stanley Cup hasn’t visited Michigan this summer. According to the Blackburn News’s Bob Montgomery, the Cup will make a relatively close visit across from the Blue Water Bridge in Seaforth and Goderich later this month:
Seaforth and Goderich will be honouring local hockey hero Ryan O’Reilly later this month.
O’Reilly and the St. Louis Blues won the Stanley Cup this year and O’Reilly won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player in the playoffs.
The Seaforth parade will start at 9:30 in the morning on Thursday, July 25th – come down the main street to the arena, where O’Reilly will be available for pictures for up to an hour and a half.
The parade in Goderich will start shortly after 1:00 that same afternoon – leaving the town hall, going around the Square and back to the town hall and then out to the YMCA for pictures.
O’Reilly only has a limited time with the Stanley Cup but there will be opportunities for people to talk with him and take pictures.
