It appears Lord Stanley’s coveted prize could be Antigonish-bound this summer.

Last night, the Chicago Blackhawks knocked off the Boston Bruins 3-2 in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup final to capture their second Stanley Cup in four years.

The game ended in dramatic fashion with Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland scoring goals 17 seconds apart late in the third period to help the Blackhawks steal the lead and the game from the Bruins.

While it was a disappointing night for Hammonds Plains’ Brad Marchand and Port Hawkesbury’s Aaron Johnson, it was one a pair of Nova Scotians in Chicago’s front office will certainly remember.

Al MacIsaac is a vice-president with the Blackhawks. The Antigonish native is in his third year as Vice President/Assistant to the President for Chicago and his 13th as a member of the Blackhawks Hockey Operations Department.

Dennis Bonvie also has something to celebrate this summer. Bonvie is a scout for the Blackhawks, a position he has worked in since the summer of 2009. The Frankville resident earned a reputation during his playing 15-year career in the AHL and NHL as one of the toughest players in the game.

MacIsaac and Bonvie will be joining fellow Nova Scotian Cup champs Brad Marchand, Mike McPhee, Jon Sim and others at the Night of Champions on Tuesday, July 23rd at the Halifax Metro Centre. You can purchase tickets for the event here.

Hockey Nova Scotia would like to congratulate Al MacIsaac and Dennis Bonvie on their Stanley Cup victory. We look forward to hopefully seeing the Cup back in Nova Scotia during the coming months!
