SMU-Stanley Cup



More than 1,000 people came to Saint Mary's University Friday, September 6th, to get a photo taken with the Stanley Cup.
                  
The event was thanks to 1975 alumnus John McDonough, President and CEO of the Chicago Blackhawks, who chose to share the Stanley Cup with his alma mater and with the greater Winona area.

Just prior to the public viewing, McDonough triumphantly lifted the Cup over his head to the cheers of a large crowd in Gostomski Fieldhouse during the rally.

SMU hockey legends were also recognized, and the crowd enjoyed presentations by McDonough and Brother William Mann, SMU president, as well as a Blackhawks highlight video.

During the event, a plaque recognizing McDonough's accomplishments was unveiled. The plaque will permanently hang in the lobby of the SMU Ice Arena.
