Taking the Stanley Cup Home to Mom & Dad

From Dan Rosen at NHL.com:

Mike and Marlene Neely never got to see their only son win the Stanley Cup. They both succumbed to cancer, first Marlene in 1987 and then Mike seven years later.

Mike and Marlene also had a wish to have their children spread their ashes in the Pacific Ocean. So, that’s what Cam and his sisters, Chris and Shaun, did for them.

Today, Cam and his sisters are bringing the trophy he worked his entire life for back to his parents because a special visit to his hometown like this one wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Belcarra Regional Park here in Port Moody.

Update: Here are some of Rosen’s photos today.

Growing up and living my whole life in New England I can tell you this. While Bobby Orr is the best D-man of all-time and one of the fan favorites here. Also, along with Espo and Bourque the 3 greatest B’s in the last 50 years, most B’s fans love Neely and Terry O-Reilly before him. They look at those players as the guys most like them and respect them more than anybody.
Congrats Cam.
