Rare double-Cup (Calder, Stanley) appearance to take place near Grand Rapids, MI

This is pretty cool: the Grand Rapids Press's Peter J. Wallner reports that the Grand Rapids suburb of Grandville, MI will be hosting both the AHL's Calder Cup and the NHL's Stanley Cup this weekend, making a rare double-appearance for charitable purposes:

The Stanley Cup, emblematic of the winner of the NHL championship, and the Calder Cup, which goes to the champions of the AHL, will be at Osgood Brewing, at 4051 Chicago Drive SW., on Saturday afternoon.

The Stanley Cup, which belongs to the Chicago Blackhawks, will be in the possession of Blackhawks equipment assistant Jim Heintzelman, who formerly worked with the Grand Rapids Griffins, and will be on site from 4-8 p.m.

The Calder Cup, making one of its many West Michigan appearances following the Griffins’ first AHL championship, will arrive around 5 p.m. with host Brad Thompson, the Griffins' equipment manager.

Pictures with the cups will be available for a donation to a charity to be determined. A professional photographer will also be on hand.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
