The Chicago Blackhawks have donated a 2013 Stanley Cup championship ring to the Hockey Hall of Fame. The presentation was made in Toronto on Dec. 14, 2013.
The Blackhawks, two-time winners in the last four years, made the presentation at the Hockey Hall of Fame Museum in downtown Toronto (before the Maple Leafs-Blackhawks game). Team president John McDonough made the presentation to museum curator Phil Pritchard.
According to the Blackhawks, 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.” It is a ruby-and-diamond encrusted ring with the Blackhawks logo on the face and five miniature Stanley Cups on the side (representing 1934, 1938, 1961, 2010 and 2013).
“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.”
