VENTNOR – The sunshine reflected off the shiny silver trophy bearing the names of all the winners of the Stanley Cup ice hockey series, and if you looked closely, you would see Ventnor resident Justin Williams’ name there twice.

Williams, who moved to Ventnor Heights three years ago, brought the trophy to Ventnor City Hall Friday, July 18 for his friends and neighbors to see and admire. Along with the Stanley Cup, he brought the 2014 Conn Smythe Award, which he was awarded for being the most valuable player of the post-season.

A major league hockey tradition allows each member of the winning team, this year the Los Angeles Kings, to have the trophy to display in their hometown for 24 hours. The trophy was on display at Harrah’s Resort and Caesar’s Atlantic City Thursday and Friday, July 17-18, but Williams swept it away for a few hours to show to his neighbors in Ventnor.
