Season Ticket Holders and all fans must have a ticket to that evening’s Oct. 7, 2018 Hershey vs Bridgeport game in order to take a picture with the Stanley Cup®. All Season Ticket Holders must show a valid Oct. 7 season ticket to enter the designated season ticket time slot.
In order to gain access to the Stanley Cup® line, all guests must enter through the main doors of Giant Center. All guests will be subject to security procedures and checks.
One photo per person, group or individual. In order to accommodate as many guests as possible, if in line with a group, a group photo will be required. For example, a family of four in line will be required to take one group photo together. Individual pictures with the Stanley Cup® for each member of a group will not be permitted due to time concerns.
Due to popular demand, a photo with the Stanley Cup® is not guaranteed. The Bears, the NHL, and the Giant Center staff will do their best to accommodate as many guests as possible. To assist with this process, fans are encouraged to attend the appropriate designated time slot, arrive early, and follow all direction of staff members on site. Once a cutoff time is designated during the 3rd period, no further guests will be allowed in line.
The Bears will be wearing special Capitals themed jerseys for Sunday's game as they honor the first championship for their NHL affiliate. A total of 14 former Hershey Bears helped the Capitals claim the Stanley Cup® in June. In addition to the Stanley Cup®, the Conn Smythe Trophy, Rocket Richard Trophy, and Prince of Wales Trophy will also appear in Hershey on Oct. 7. The Conn Smythe Trophy, awarded to the playoff MVP, and Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy, given to the NHL's regular season top goal scorer, were both won by Washington captain Alex Ovechkin. The Capitals also claimed the Prince of Wales Trophy as Eastern Conference Champions on the way to their first Stanley Cup® title.
