Barry Trotz is now a Stanley Cup champion. And his hockey roots run deep in Manitoba, having both played and coached in the MJHL.
Trotz, the pride and joy of Dauphin, hoisted hockey’s much-cherished Holy Grail when the Washington Capitals defeated Las Vegas Golden Knights 4-1 in their best of seven series.
The long-time NHL head coach said it was a dream come true to win the Cup which he’s been chasing since he was a head coach with Nashville. Ironically, Trotz does not have a contact heading into next season and is already rumoured to be the new head coach of New York Islanders.
