On the 121st anniversary of Lord Stanley of Preston gifting the Stanley Cup, Ottawa’s Lord Stanley Memorial Monument Committee announced that it would construct a monument to that moment on Monday. NHL.com collects reports that indicate it could be unveiled on March 18, 2017 – 125 years after the idea was hatched.
It’s expected that the monument will be paid for by donations/sponsors, covering estimated costs of $7-$8 million, according to NHL.com.
Here are some details about where it might be located:
According to multiple Canadian media reports, a monument to Lord Stanley of Preston, the governor general of Canada, will be located on city-owned land near the intersection of Sparks and Elgin streets — not far from where the idea of what would become the Stanley Cup originated.
