The Crystal Cup is excited to announce our special guest for this year's event, Mr. Larry Melnyk!!!
Born in New Westminster, British Columbia and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Melnyk started his National Hockey League career with the Boston Bruins in 1980. He also played for the Edmonton Oilers, New York Rangers, and Vancouver Canucks. He left the NHL after the 1990 season.
Melnyk won two Stanley Cup rings with Edmonton, in 1984 and 1985. In 1984, he spent the whole regular season in the minors. He was called up and played six playoff games. His name was not engraved on the Cup, because he had not played enough games to qualify. Melnyk joined Edmonton full-time midway through the 1985 season. He played in the Final and got his name was engraved on the Cup that season.
Larry will be out on site with us most of the weekend and you can meet him and check out those Oiler dynasty era rings at the Pembina Kid's Event on Saturday from 11am to 3pm or in the Gardens Friday and Saturday night!!!
Huge thanks to our sponsors Pomeroy Hotel, Driving Force and of course our good friend Dave Babych for making this happen!!
