Stanley Cup is coming to New Hamburg!
Submitted By Stacey Dineen on Friday, July 20, 2018
Washington Capitals video coach, and New Hamburg Minor Hockey alumni, Brett Leonhardt is bringingthe Stanley Cup home to New Hamburg on Thursday August 2, 2018.

Leonhardt, who has been a member of the Capitals coaching staff since 2012, will be hosting a free public viewing of the Cup on Thursday August 2 from 9 am – 11 am.




“Everyone who has ever laced up skates dreams of someday winning the Stanley Cup”, says Leonhardt. “For me bringing it back to where it all started is a big part of that dream and I am excited to share the Cup with the people of Wilmot and surrounding area.”

Brett played his minor hockey in New Hamburg before moving on to play AAA and junior hockey in Cambridge and Kitchener. He also received the call for an interview from then Capitals GM George McPhee for his current position while driving through New Hamburg en route to his parent’s current home in Grand Bend. This year’s Stanley Cup summer tour visits 55 cities in 62 days and will include stops in Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Australia, and the Czech Republic, in addition to numerous stops throughout North America.

The public is invited to come see the Cup and get a picture with it on Thursday August 2 at the original downtown arena facility on 251 Jacob Street New Hamburg, where Brett learned to skate and played for the local New Hamburg Huskies. As part of the festivities, members of the public will have an opportunity to enter a draw for a signed Alex Ovechkin Washington Capitals jersey with the proceeds going to New Hamburg Minor Hockey.

The open house will run from 9 am – 11 am.  For further information contact Jeff Gerber ([email protected]) or Brett Leonhardt([email protected])
