Stanley Cup lands in Winona


Winona, MINNESOTA (WXOW)  The Stanley Cup is one of the more iconic championship trophies in North America.

The Chicago Blackhawks are the keepers of the cup for now after winning the NHL title this past season.

Lord Stanley's Cup was in Winona Friday evening, courtesy of Blackhawks President and CEO John McDonough.

Each member of the Stanley Cup championship team and front office gets the cup for one day and McDonough decided to bring it to St. Mary's University, where he graduated in 1975.

"It's the ultimate reward because it was, to say the least, a long shot.  This was not in the cards at all.  But through all of it, and I had a wonderful career with the Chicago Cubs, and now with the Blackhawks for almost 6 years, you got to put this in perspective.  Our goal now is to go out and win another one.  And there's nothing more that I'd like to make another trip to St. Mary's," McDoungh said during a celebration at the school.
