The Stanley Cup returned to England on Tuesday after more than 100 years’ refuge in, mostly, North America. The homecoming was greatly appreciated by all the Canadians in London.
Some 114 years ago, Lord Stanley, earl of Preston, governor general of Canada, walked down Regent Street in London and purchased a trophy for “a challenge cup which should be held from year to year by the champion hockey team in the Dominion of Canada.”
