Two-time Stanley Cup champion Duncan Keith will celebrate his 2013 Stanley Cup victory with Penticton on Aug. 31.

The NHL defensemen, Olympic gold medalist, Norris Trophy winner and Penticton Panthers (now the Vees) alumnus is sharing the Stanley Cup at Gyro Park at 11 a.m.

“We’re thrilled that the Stanley Cup is coming to Penticton and the community can share in Duncan Keith’s achievement,” said deputy mayor Helena Konanz, who hopes fans of all ages come out to show their support.

This year, a special invite has been extended to players of the Upper Dek Vees, a special needs hockey team and group that holds great meaning to Keith.

“By sharing his day with the Cup with all of us, Duncan Keith is paying the ultimate tribute to the City of Penticton. He is one of Penticton’s hockey heroes and we expect this to be a special day,” said Larry Lund, chair of the local tribute committee.

Due to time limitations, autographs will not be available, but the public is welcome to bring cameras
