"It will be the afternoon of Monday, Aug. 27," said Drewiske, "We'll have it on display at the hockey rink for two or three hours."

Drewiske said the times of events are still to be determined as he is still unsure of the exact time he will be picking up the cup from the airport.

Expected events for the celebration include a procession of the cup into the city, photos with the trophy at Gornick Arena, multiple speakers, including Drewiske himself, food and beverages and a food drive.

The Kings won the trophy for the first time in franchise history this past year, as they defeated the New Jersey Devils in six games to win the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Stanley Cup, named after Lord Stanley of Preston, originated in 1893 and is awarded yearly to the playoff champion of the National Hockey League, according to Wikipedia.
