New Wing Mitchell Stepehens to have his ‘Day With the Cup’ on Wednesday in Peterborough

Global News’s Greg Davis reports that newly-acquired Red Wings center Mitchell Stepehens is to have his delayed “Day With the Cup” on Wednesday in Peterborough, Ontario:

Peterborough native Mitchell Stephens will be bringing hockey’s holy grail home this week for a celebration.

The 24-year-old will bring the Stanley Cup to the city on Wednesday, Aug. 25, the City of Peterborough announced Monday.

It’s the second-straight championship for the forward who was part of back-to-back championships with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Their most recent title came in July after the club beat the Montreal Canadiens 4-1 in the best-of-seven championship.

Stephens was traded to the Detroit Red Wings on July 30 in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2022 NHL entry draft. He had signed a two-year extension with the Lightning in October 2020.
