Stanley Cup reward for Langley team’s generosity

The Langley Atom A4 Eagles hockey team got a big reward for their good deeds on Feb. 5.

Earlier this year, the hockey team members gathered more than 400 pounds of food and $375 for the Langley Food Bank.

As a thank you, Scotiabank brought the Stanley Cup to Twin Rinks after a Wednesday game.

The game didn’t go so well for the Eagles, but they were all smiles when the curtain rolled back and revealed the cup.

The players rushed the top hockey trophy, and had group and individual photos taken with it.

Mike Bolt, the official keeper of the cup, said the trophy makes its way to many small communities, local teams, and individuals.

“We’re on the road about 320 days a year,” he said.

The Stanley Cup was headed for Sochi for the start of the Olympics.
