“We at KCIce are thrilled to bring the Stanley cup back to Kansas City,” Ken Morrow, President of KCIce, said. “KCIce has worked hard the last decade to grow the awareness and availability of hockey and other ice related sports here in the KC area, and it is very exciting and important for all of us to help celebrate the opening of Summit Ice and to give the local hockey and sports fans the once in a lifetime opportunity to come see the Stanley Cup.”
This special viewing event has been made possible by Morrow, four-time Stanley Cup champion, US Olympic gold medal winner on the 1980 “Miracle on Ice” hockey team, and President of KCIce. KCIce was contracted by Lee’s Summit Parks and Recreation to construct and now operates the new Summit Ice outdoor ice rink in Lee’s Summit. Morrow reached out to the National Hockey League (NHL) to discuss the possibility of the Stanley Cup visiting Lee’s Summit; the NHL agreed and the viewing dates were set. This is the first time that the Stanley Cup has visited Lee’s Summit in its history.
