Richards brings Cup to smallest city to win it (Sportsnet.ca)
KENORA, ONT. — The Stanley Cup returned to Kenora over the August long weekend for another cruise around Lake of the Woods with hometown hero Mike Richards of the Los Angeles Kings. Kenora has a history with the iconic trophy; the northwestern Ontario town is still the smallest Canadian city (population 15,300) to have won the Stanley Cup, in 1907.
Richards is synonymous with hockey in the area and an idol for many young hockey players growing up through the ranks.

He also won gold at the 2005 world junior championships and Olympic gold with Canada’s men’s team in 2010.
