The Spitfires have now won their third Memorial Cup, their last two championships coming back-to-back in 2009 and 2010 when Taylor Hall was setting the CHL ablaze.
For Stanley, the victory will come as vindication as he missed 47 games of his season and Windsor’s first round series against the London Knights which they lost in seven games. Undeterred, he took a leadership role within the team as he rehabbed as was awarded by his teammates with their internal leadership award at the end of the season.
We will next see Stanley this summer as he competes at rookie camp with other Jets prospects.
Next year’s Memorial Cup will take place in Regina, Saskatchewan.
