Stanley Cup dented after fall

Updated: August 30, 2011 4:52PM



ST. JOHN’S, Newfoundland — The Stanley Cup is sporting a new dent after toppling from a table in Newfoundland.

The silver trophy was being readied for a helicopter flight from St. John’s to Bonavista, the hometown of former Boston Bruin Michael Ryder, when it fell over.

Officials quickly righted the cup during the welcoming ceremony.

Ryder recently signed a two-year contract with the Dallas Stars. He is the second Newfoundlander to bring the Stanley Cup to the province.

Detroit’s Dan Cleary did in 2008 after the Red Wings defeated Pittsburgh in the final series.
