WATERVILLE — The Stanley Cup, presented annually to the National Hockey League champion, will be on display at Colby College’s Alfond Rink on Tuesday, Aug. 2, from 1-3 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public. Fans may touch and take photos with the Cup.

Waterville native Andy Saucier, the video coach for the Pittsburgh Penguins, is bringing the Stanley Cup to Waterville as part of his day with it. All players, coaches and front office personnel of a Stanley Cup winning team are allowed one day with the trophy. The viewing at Colby is the Cup’s only public appearance while in central Maine. Saucier will spend the rest of his day with the Cup celebrating with family and friends.

“I grew up playing youth hockey at Colby, so to be able to bring the Cup back to the same rink is pretty special,” Saucier said.

Saucier is the grandson of Colby hockey coaching great Jack Kelley, and the nephew of Colby graduate Mark Kelley, who also has won the Stanley Cup as the vice president of amateur scouting for the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Stanley Cup will be back in Maine on Aug. 9, when Penguins defenseman Brian Dumoulin brings it to his hometown, Biddeford. A parade and public viewing in Biddeford are planned.
