ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The Stanley Cup is coming back to town and will arrive just after 9 a.m. Friday for a three-day stay, according to the Cup's chaperone. 

The keeper of the Cup, Phil Pritchard will chaperone the trophy as it spends Friday through Sunday with one of the St. Louis Blues coaches, a team trainer and forward Pat Maroon. The 33-year-old Oakville native, Maroon will have his day with the Cup on Saturday. 

"We'll see how the hockey fever is still alive and well in Missouri," Pritchard says. 

Pritchard tells KMOX that what impressed him the most about when the Blues returned to St. Louis after the Game 7 win is the relationship between the players and the fans.
