About 1,000 people showed up to see the Stanley Cup on display in Quebec City on Sunday afternoon.
Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron brought the cup to the Espace 400e pavilion in the city’s old port between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m.
Fans hoping to touch the legendary trophy began lining up as early as 6 a.m. Sunday morning, despite rain in the forecast.
Every player on the cup winning team is awarded one day with the cup in their hometown during the summer, and Sunday was Bergeron’s turn.
His hometown is Quebec City suburb L’Ancienne-Lorette.
Bergeron said he was happy to see a good turnout.
“It’s really special for me to come to my hometown. I’m happy to be able to share this with [the fans],” said Bergeron.
