Nova Scotia Premier congratulates Nathan MacKinnon
It was a big Sunday for Nathan MacKinnon.
He won the 2022 Stanley Cup with the Colorado Avalanche.
The Premier of Nova Scotia, Tim Houston, says MacKinnon is a role model for young people across the province.
“In the final game, Nathan MacKinnon helped clinch the victory with a goal and an assist, and we are so proud of him.
He continues to be a role model for youth and an ambassador for Nova Scotia.
I congratulate him on this exciting win.”
MacKinnon led the Avalanche with 13 goals, tied for most in the NHL playoffs.
It is his first Stanley Cup win since he was drafted first overall by the Avalanche in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
MacKinnon played minor hockey in Cole Harbour.
Nova Scotians have been part of nine Stanley Cup wins in the last 25 years.
