It was a day that Zach Whitecloud will remember forever.

The Stanley Cup champion from the Vegas Golden Knights returned home with the most coveted trophy in hockey to share it with his home community of Sioux Valley Dakota Nation.

The former MJHL star also brought the cup back to Virden where he played two seasons for the Oil Capitals.

“Being able to bring it back to my mom’s house in Brandon, being able to bring it to the [Virden] rink here and of course Sioux Valley and just being able to share with friends and family that were all on that journey to get me to that point … not as a thank you but that’s what the hard work can turn into,” Whitecloud said to CBC Manitoba.
