Tom Wilson Stanley Cup Celebration

Though it happened almost two years ago, we will never forget the day that Lord Stanley came to North Toronto Arena!

It was carried by Washington Capitals forward and Stanley Cup champion Tom Wilson.  Tom and his brothers all played minor hockey at NT, with Tom playing AA hockey until he was 13 years old before moving on to elite hockey. Throughout his elite junior and professional career that took him to the pinnacle of our sport, Tom has always considered North Toronto as his home for hockey where he learned to love the sport and the people in it. We are honoured that he chose his to share his day with the Stanley Cup with all of us here at North Toronto.

On August 8, 2018 one of our most famous alumni – Tom Wilson of the Washington Capitals –came home for hockey when he brought the Stanley Cup to North Toronto Arena to celebrate his victory with us. The attendance from NT families was impressive as was the generosity for Tom’s charity, the Sick Kids Foundation. Winning a Stanley Cup is the dream that drives almost every single young hockey player so seeing it in our house was an irreplaceable experience. But even more than that, we can all be inspired by Tom as a great example of a fine young man committed to his hockey roots and to our community.
