Due to tremendous efforts of Roseau's Dustin Byfuglien and his Chicago Black Hawks team mates, the Stanley Cup will be coming to Roseau! This is the second time an individual from Roseau has won the Stanley Cup, but will be the first time it will be in Roseau.
Roseau was voted the Capital of the State of Hockey contest on www.wild.com on April 10, 2010 when the Wild hosted the Dallas Stars. Roseau has always been strong, winning their first state championship in 1946 when they were known as the Green Wave. The tremendous effort of the coaches to teach our young people to skate and play the game is renown. Even when the young boys played in youth hockey they were tough enough to go all the way to the Nationals and win.
Congratulations to Dustin Byfuglien and his team, they were deserving of the win and we are proud to be associated with them.
