Police looking for stolen 1907 Stanley Cup banner

In 1907, the Kenora Thistles defeated the Montreal Wanderers to win the Stanley Cup.

Over 100 years later, their championship banner has gone missing.

That’s the word out of Ontario today as Provincial Police say they’re looking for the public’s help in locating the banner, believed to be stolen from the Whitecap Pavilion sometime between Friday evening and Saturday morning.

In addition to the banner — which is white and burgundy, so keep an eye out — a Canadian flag and a Los Angeles Kings Stanley Cup flag were also taken.

Trivia time: Among the players on Kenora’s 1907 Cup-winning team? None other than Hockey Hall of Famer and namesake of the NHL’s top scorer trophy — Art Ross.

    If you dig up Pronger’s great-great-grandfather, you’ll find the banner
