The Winnipeg Jets may not be hoisting the Stanley Cup at the end of the hockey season, but Winnipeggers can still get a look at the shiny piece of hardware on Monday.

The NHL’s coveted trophy will be at the Festival du Voyageur as part of Scotiabank’s cross-Canada Celebration of Hockey tour.

“Whether you play hockey or cheer from the stands, the Stanley Cup is a cultural symbol that all Canadians can proudly identify with,” said Terry Bjornson, Scotiabank’s district vice-president for Manitoba and North Western Ontario. “The Scotiabank Celebration of Hockey program gives Canadians a chance to get close to hockey’s beloved icon.”

The trophy will be at Voyageur Park inside the Fort la Reine Tent between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
