Plaque Text

In January, 1907, a hockey team from Kenora, comprising E. Giroux (goal), A.H. Ross (point), S.I. Griffis (cover point), T. Hooper (rover), W. McGimsie (centre), R. Beaudro (right wing) and T. Phillips (captain and left wing), defeated the Montreal Wanderers in two challenge games at Montreal to win the Stanley Cup. The team was coached and trained by J.A.Link. The trophy, emblematic of the Canadian championship, had been presented by the Governor General, Baron Stanley of Preston, in 1892. Kenora is the smallest town to ever win the Cup.

This is great that everyone can see that something so small can be a part of something so big, I am very proud of Kenora on how far they have come in their community. I too am from Kenora and feel very lucky to be part of this beautiful little town.
