Bradley bringing Stanley Cup to Abbotsford on Aug. 15

Hockey's holy grail is coming to Abbotsford in two weeks' time.

Hockey’s holy grail is coming to Abbotsford in two weeks’ time.

Scott Bradley, a longtime Abbotsford resident who serves as the Boston Bruins’ director of player personnel, is bringing the Stanley Cup to his hometown on Monday, Aug. 15.

Bradley’s Bruins defeated the Vancouver Canucks in a thrilling seven-game final series, and Bradley is believed to be the first person from Abbotsford to have his name inscribed on the Cup.

“This is something that might only come along once, and I’m happy to share it,” he said.

Bradley, a two-time cancer survivor, will bring the Cup to the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre on the morning of Aug. 15.

In the afternoon, between 2:30 and 6:30 p.m., the trophy will be made available to the public at The Baron Bar and Grill (1266 Tower St.). For a minimum donation of $10 to Miracle Flights for Kids Canada – a charity which supplies low-income sick children with flights for medical treatment in distant locations – people can have their picture taken with the Cup. People can use their own camera, or for a small additional charge, an on-site professional photographer sponsored by Belfor Canada will provide a glossy print.

Bradley is looking forward to his day with the Cup, as an opportunity to share it with his family – wife Cathy, son Richard and daughter Allison – and the community.
