It's Joe DiPenta Day!
There's not much of a ring to it, really.
Tomorrow in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, home to hockey's most famous wunderkind, has been proclaimed Joe DiPenta Day:
Shortly after Joe DiPenta won the Stanley Cup with the Anaheim Ducks in June, the Cole Harbour native's thoughts began to turn to another jubilant event.
He would get one day with Lord Stanley, and he could spend it his way.
In honour of the event, Mayor Peter Kelly issued a statement on behalf of Halifax Regional Council yesterday, proclaiming tomorrow Joe DiPenta Day.Two days after Sid Crosby's 20th birthday, no less.
