Cup to visit Northwestern on Saturday

The Stanley Cup will continue make its rounds Saturday as Chicago Blackhawks chairman Rocky Wirtz and president John McDonough bring it to Ryan Field for Northwestern’s home game against Central Michigan.

Blackhawks fan and Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald was as excited as anyone for the opportunity to see the Stanley Cup up close.

"As a native Chicagoan who grew up cheering for the Blackhawks, this is a thrill for our fans," Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said. "It's terrific that we can recognize Rocky and John who have been so instrumental in leading the Blackhawks back to the top of the NHL. There should be plenty of electricity in the stadium on Saturday with the Stanley Cup on the field and our students back in the stands."
