GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The National Hockey League’s Stanley Cup, the oldest championship in North American professional team sports, is coming to Ralph Engelstad Arena.

The iconic trophy will accompany former University of North Dakota men’s hockey captain Matt Greene to Grand Forks on Tuesday, Aug. 12 for a public viewing at Engelstad Arena. Greene and his Los Angeles Kings captured their second Stanley Cup championship in three years when they defeated the New York Rangers in five games in the Stanley Cup Finals in June.

The Cup will be on display in the main lobby of Engelstad Arena from 12-3 p.m. Central. Fans will have the opportunity to take photographs with the Cup and take home a free special commemorative flyer.

A video highlight package featuring Greene and the Kings will also run on the video screens in the lobby.

Greene, an assistant captain with the Kings, played at North Dakota 2002-03 through 2004-05. He captained the 2005 Fighting Sioux team to the NCAA Frozen Four championship game in Columbus, Ohio.

In his three years at UND, Greene appeared in 122 games, collecting three goals and 28 assists.
