The Stanley Cup is coming to Minnesota - Bring Me The News

The Stanley Cup is coming to Minnesota

Jake Guentzel, bringing the cup back to his home state.

Jake Guentzel helped the Pittsburgh Penguins hoist another Stanley Cup last month.

And now he's bringing Lord Stanley to the State of Hockey.

Guentzel will bring the cup to HealthEast Sports – formerly Bielenberg Sports Center – in Woodbury on July 13, from 1-3 p.m.

It's free!

The event will be free and open to the public, but fans should probably arrive early to get a spot to take a picture with the cup.

Guentzel played high school hockey at Hill-Murray High School. He officially joined the Penguins organization in March of 2016 after playing three seasons at the University of Nebraska-Omaha.

The 22-year-old tied an NHL playoff record – previously held by former North Star Dino Ciccarelli – with 21 points. His 13 goals were also the most for any player in the postseason this year.

Hockey runs deep in his family too as his father, Mike Guentzel, is an associate head coach for the Gopher men's hockey team.
