Players, coaches and managers appeared on the scene in their red jerseys, but above all, the trophy symbolizes the supremacy of Canadian junior hockey as well as the Gilles Corto Trophy, which rewards the champion team in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
Just like his troops, general manager and chief coach Patrick Roy deserved the congratulations of Prime Minister François Legault and the leaders of the opposition, namely the liberal Marc Tanguay, the solidarity Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois and the piquist Paul Saint-Pierre Plamondon.
Moreover, Mr. Lego was quick to wink – literally and figuratively – at the 30th anniversary of the last Stanley Cup win by the Montreal Canadiens, as he made clear on his Twitter account.
He and Roy, the main cast of the title obtained on June 9, 1993, winked at the camera, which is reminiscent of the gesture made by “Kasso” towards Thomas Sandström, of the Los Angeles Kings during a final game.
