The Prince George Cougars Hockey Club, in partnership with Brett Connolly and the City of Prince George, have released details for the August 20 Stanley Cup celebration at the CN Centre.

The celebration, which is free to the public, is set to begin at noon on Monday, August 20, inside the CN Centre; doors will open at 10 a.m. Some fans will have an opportunity to get their picture taken with Connolly and the Stanley Cup after a short rally at ice level.

Prince George Minor Hockey kids, wearing their jerseys, are invited to a “kids only” area in front of the stage at the celebration.

“I can’t wait to come back home and celebrate the Stanley Cup win. Prince George has left an indelible mark on my career, from playing PG minor hockey to playing for the Cougars and being drafted into the NHL,” said Connolly in a news release. “This is my chance to repay everyone that has helped me along the way.”

At the Stanley Cup celebration, fans will have an opportunity to win two VIP backstage experiences and numerous Brett Connolly and Washington Capitals autographed memorabilia, through silent auctions and raffles. All proceeds from the silent auctions and raffles will go to the Brock Hirsche Memorial Scholarship Fund at the University of Lethbridge.

Starting Monday, July 16, fans can go to the Cougars’ website and bid on a VIP package for four, that includes exclusive backstage access during the Stanley Cup celebration, a private picture with the Stanley Cup and Brett Connolly plus autograph merchandise. The silent auction will close on Friday, August 17.

There will also be a draw for the same VIP package, with a suggested minimum of a $5 donation for a ticket. Draw tickets will be available, by donation, at the Cougars office or the TicketsNorth box office, starting Monday, July 16. Closing date is also Friday, August 17, at 4 p.m.

There will be other opportunities to win autographed merchandise at the event.

A large turnout is expected for Brett Connolly’s Stanley Cup Celebration, so fans are encouraged to arrive early to have a chance to get a picture with the Stanley Cup.
