After spending the day with Braden Holtby in Marshall, Saskatchewan on Monday, Brett Leonhardt in New Hamburg, Ontario on Thursday and Brock Myles in Chesley, Ontario, on Friday, the Stanley Cup moved to the small village of St. Clements, Ontario, on Saturday for a day with Capitals goalie coach Scott Murray. (Reminder, you can find the latest schedule of dates for Capitals players “day with the Stanley Cup” right here.) 

Murray grew up in the village of St. Clements. He played minor hockey with the local team, the St. Clements Saints (before they merged with the Wellesley into Twin Centre). He shifted over to Waterloo AAA in his Bantam years, and continued to excel as a goalie.

In an interview with the Observer, Murray commented on his lifelong goal. “For sure, my goal when I grew up was playing in the NHL. No question. And so you work for that and you think about it, you dream about it, and you keep trying to strive towards that,” he said. “But when I met my wife at the University of Windsor, and left to play pro in my first year after meeting her, I think you kind of realize at some point there’s priorities that come in life that become a little bigger than your playing career. And starting a family was one of them.”

One of the first stops for Scott Murray and the Stanley Cup was Stemmler Meats in Heidelberg, Ontario.

You never know what the day will bring. Make your day an AMAZING one. #stanleycup

The day concluded with a private party, which included a pig roast. Before stopping for the party, Murray gave a few kids and the Stanley Cup a ride through the neighborhood.
