(VV Board and Staff with Madison Bowey and the Stanley Cup in the Splex Jul 28/18)


NHL champion Madison Bowey  brought the Stanley Cup to Varsity View Community Club on July 28 at 3 p.m.

Bowey, defenceman for the Washington Capitals hockey team, is a former Varsity View Falcon and he will bring hockey’s greatest trophy back to his childhood club for a party. All were welcome to attend this free event.

“My hockey career began here, at this great community club in this wonderful hockey city, and this is my chance to pay tribute to everyone who helped me get started, and encouraged me to keep going,” Bowey says. “It’s a great honour to have this privilege and I can’t wait to celebrate back home in my community.”

Traditionally, players and staff of the championship team each get a day to take the trophy to a destination of their choosing. Madison chose to share it with his community, where it all began.
