TORONTO (December 14, 2013) – Hockey Hall of Fame Curator Phil Pritchard added a 2013 Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup ring to the Stanley Cup Championship display today at the Hockey Hall of Fame.
The ring, donated by the Chicago Blackhawks organization, is featured in a display celebrating the current and past Stanley Cup champions. The ring was designed to tell the story of the Blackhawks memorable season of achieving the “One Goal” of becoming the NHL 2013 Stanley Cup Champions.
The ruby and diamond encrusted ring features the iconic Blackhawks logo and the words “Stanley Cup Champions” across the top and bottom. The ring is made of 14-karat white gold and is the first Stanley Cup ring since 2003 (NJ) to move the Stanley Cup off the face of the ring.
“We are very grateful to the Blackhawks organization, especially, Rocky Wirtz, John McDonough, Jay Blunk, Stan Bowman, Al MacIsaac and Norm Maciver,” said Pritchard. “The 2013 Championship ring makes a great addition to the Stanley Cup Championship display. Our guests, who visit us from around the world, will be thrilled to be able to view it.”
