A great gift

Paquette was on the Tampa Bay Lightning's roster when they won the 2020 Stanley Cup. Although he received his ring, he unfortunately could not have his moment with the cup due to the pandemic context.

Paquette will have the chance to get back on track, having made his parade of champions last October 22 in Gaspésie. He will be back soon, but this time, he will have the precious trophy in his possession. The Stanley Cup will be in the city of Gaspé on Thursday, August 19. He will be available to take pictures with the public, between 1:00 and 3:30 p.m., at the Centre des loisirs Cédric Paquette in Saint-Majorique.

Season 2020-21
