The Anaheim Ducks assistant coach and the Stanley Cup will be in town Aug. 19. A ceremony honouring Farrish is set to begin at 1:30 p.m. at the Lucknow and District Arena. Fans can view the Cup from 2 to 5 p.m.
"I left there at a very young age," Farrish said in an interview, "but a lot of people there, I'm sure they've told their kids and their grandkids about us and our minor hockey days."
Farrish will take the Cup to his Mother's home in Goderich after the public viewing. The trophy will be coming from Manitoulin Island where it will have spent Saturday night at a cottage belonging to Ducks' head coach Randy Carlyle.

If you had one day with the Stanley Cup, what would you do?
As a rule, every player on the winning cup team gets to spend one day with the trophy, and Lucknow native Dave Farrish is bringing the Cup home.

Serving as assistant coach of the Anaheim Ducks, Farrish helped guide the team to a series win against the Ottawa Senators
Currently residing in Anaheim, Farrish has recruited Glen Porter to fly the Cup from his summer residence on Manitoulin Island and into Lucknow on Aug. 19. Then his hometown community will have the honour of hosting the legendary hockey icon at the Lucknow Sports Complex from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Visitors are welcome to stop in for a peek, and bring their own cameras for a chance at snapping a few photos of Farrish and the Cup. The first 2,000 people to arrive at the viewing will also receive a free, personalized autographed photo of Farrish with the trophy.
