Ric Jackman spent his last two years as a professional hockey player in the Elite Ice Hockey league. Playing on the blue line for the likes of Braehead Clan and finishing his career with the Fife Flyers.
But having played in the EIHL, he is also a Stanley Cup Champion.
We all know that the Stanley Cup is probably the most prestigious in all of professional sports – save perhaps the World Cup, but to each their own… But new fans may not know the history of the cup that all hockey fans long to see their team win. In this series, I’m going to give a run down on the history of the best silverware on offer.
Czechoslovakia split and became the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Bill Clinton became the 42nd US President and the Montreal Canadiens won the Stanley Cup. We haven’t had a Canadian team win ever since.
