Stanley Cup on display for Las Vegas Wranglers game

CREATED Nov. 29, 2012

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Stanley Cup made an appearance on Action News @ Midday, just before heading to the Orleans Arena for Thursday's Las Vegas Wranglers game.

The Stanley Cup travels around the world for much of the year, making this a rare appearance in Las Vegas.

"This is the second time we've had it in our history," said Bill Johnson, president of the Wranglers.

The keeper of the cup, Phil Pritchard, shared a few facts about the Stanley Cup.

"The winning team gets it for 100 days," Pritchard said. "So each player gets to take it home to show mom or dad and thank their first coach or teacher." 

The Stanley Cup has traveled thousands of miles all across the world. 

"If it could talk, it would probably be a best-seller, because some of the stories would be unbelievable," Pritchard said.

The Stanley Cup will be on display at the Wranglers vs. San Francisco Bulls game Thursday night. Doors open at the Orleans Arena at 6 p.m.
