On Wednesday, October 24, Washington Capitals’ Western Scout, Terry Richardson, had his day with the Stanley Cup.  The Cup was at Richardson’s house in Langley, British Columbia where they shared it with family and friends.   (Reminder, you can find links to each and every “day with the Stanley Cup” that have already occurred right here.)

Richardson shared his thoughts about having the Cup in an interview with Global News:

“I’ve been in hockey since I was about four years old so this is a dream come true.  Any little guy who grew up in Canada dreams about playing for the Stanley Cup in road hockey. I know. I didn’t play for the Stanley Cup but I hope I helped in some ways to bring a cup to Washington and it couldn’t be any more exciting.”

Among the people who attended Richardson’s party and got a first-hand look at the iconic trophy were teens Sam Brown and Kyle Wardel.

“Wayne Gretzky has touched it, Crosby, and now Ovechkin has touched it. There’s so much history on this cup,” said Brown.

“It’s pretty cool, you know they’ve kissed it, they’ve held it, they’ve lifted it up,” added Wardel.

Richardson traveled across the border from Washington state with Howie Borrow, one of the Keepers of the Cup on Wednesday morning, which surprised the border guard.

Richardson reported, afterwards, “He [the border guard] asked me what I’m declaring, and I said, ‘Nothing,’ and then he said, ‘What did you go down for? … What’s in the box?’ And I said, ‘You’re not going to believe it, when I tell you but it’s the Stanley Cup.’ He hesitated a little bit, and away we went.”
