KAWARTHA LAKES: This Saturday, July 13th, will be cause for celebration as St. Louis Blues defenceman brings the Stanley Cup to his hometown.
A celebration to showcase the Stanley Cup down Kent St. is planned, as it makes its way to the Lindsay Recreation Complex, located at 133 Adelaide St. South, at 12:30 p.m.
At the Rec Complex from 12:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m., individuals will have the opportunity to receive an autograph from Mr. Dunn, as well as pose for photos with the Stanley Cup.
Dunn, a Lindsay native that played the majority of his minor hockey with the Peterborough Jr. Petes, was a key contributor to the first Stanley Cup victory for the Blues this past June. In his second season with the team, the 22-year-old played in 78 games, recording 12 goals and 23 assists.
After taking a puck to the face during the playoffs, Dunn returned for the final two games of the championship series to help lead St. Louis past the Boston Bruins.
Dunn recently told local media that he was excited to share in his victory with those from his hometown who have supported him through the years.
“It’s been pretty overwhelming the past few weeks … I just want to see everyone and make time for everyone,” explained Dunn. “A lot of people don’t get the opportunity to see something like this. It’s a historic trophy. It’s something you think about your whole life.”
