The Stanley Cup will be coming home to New Jersey on Thursday July 30, when Chicago Blackhawks defenseman and Middletown native, Trevor van Riemsdyk, gets his day with the Cup.

In a press release from the Township of Middletown, van Riemsdyk, will be bringing the Stanley Cup to the Middletown Arts Center from 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM on July 30. The town said everyone is welcome to stop by and take photographs with the Cup.

The Middletown Arts Center is located at 36 Church Street and free parking will be available in the daily parking lot located across the street from the arts center.  Mayor Stephanie Murray said, “It’s been a tremendous year for hockey in Middletown. High School North, captured its first state hockey title. We welcomed the Junior Titans, a North American Hockey League affiliate, to the township. Now Trevor van Riemsdyk is coming home with the Stanley Cup. It’s inspiring.”   

Van Riemsdyk was a standout player at Christian Brothers Academy, which is located in the Lincroft section of Middletown, prior to playing his college hockey at University of New Hampshire. The Stanley Cup last visited Middletown in the summer of 2010, when then Blackhawks assistant coach and Middletown native, Mike Haviland, brought it to the town.

Since the New Jersey Devils first won the Stanley Cup in 1995, tradition has allowed each member of the winning team to be given their personal day with the Cup, to do whatever they wish with it. Just in the last five seasons the Stanley Cup has logged over 400,000 miles, while traveling the world.
