ANCHORAGE (AP) Scott Gomez is bringing the Stanley Cup home to Anchorage.
Gomez, an Anchorage hockey player who helped the New Jersey Devils win their second NHL championship in four seasons, will bring the Stanley Cup to Anchorage on July 15.
The daylong tour will include stops at the Tesoro Sports Centre, Fort Richardson, Delaney Park Strip and Crossroads Lounge.
''We want everyone to have a chance to see it,'' said Gomez's father, Carlos.
Tradition dictates that every player on the winning team gets the Cup for one day during the off-season.
Gomez, 23, was a standout at East High and played for the Alaska All-Stars.
