It'll be Cup crazy here for ECHL Hockey Heritage Weekend in Feb.

Posted by DOYLE WOODY, adn.com on January 23, 2014 

We already knew the NHL's Stanley Cup and the ECHL's Kelly Cup would be here for the ECHL's Hockey Heritage Weekend, Feb. 7-8, when the league's 2014 Hall of Fame Class will be inducted and the Alaska Aces and Stockton Thunder will play games.

Today, the Aces and the league announced there's more hockey hardware on the way for that weekend.

Also on display will be the NHL's Hart Trophy (MVP), Calder Trophy (Rookie of the Year) and Norris Trophy (Best Defenseman).

Some dude from here named Gomez won the Calder in 2000 -- other winners include some dudes named Ovechkin and Lemieux, so kind of a big deal. 

Obviously, some of the all-time greats' names are all over those trophies -- Bobby Orr won eight straight Norris' for instance, and Wayne Gretzky won the Hart nine times.

The Aces-Thunder games at Sullivan Arena on Feb. 7-8 will include historical displays from the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto and a bunch of other stuff.
