At least one former member of the Kelowna Rockets will hoist the Stanley Cup over their head at the conclusion of the 2020 Stanley Cup Final, set to kick off Saturday night, September 19, at 4:30 PM PT.
The Dallas Stars have a pair of Rockets alumni on their roster in forwards Jamie Benn and Blake Comeau.
Benn, the captain of the Stars, was a member of the Rockets 2009 WHL Championship team. The Victoria, BC product has been a force throughout the playoffs scoring clutch goals for the Stars in critical games, he leads all Dallas forwards with 18 points (8G, 10A) through 21 playoff games.
Comeau was a member of the Rockets 2003 and 2005 WHL Championship teams and captured the 2004 Memorial Cup team while wearing the ogopogo. He has appeared in 21 games for the Stars during the 2020 playoffs, collecting six points (2G, 4A).
Benn and Comeau will face off against Luke Schenn and the Tampa Bay Lightning.
