Kevin Shattenkirk of the Anaheim Ducks visited Iona Prep’s Lower School with the Stanley Cup on Saturday.
Shattenkirk, a 2003 graduate of Iona Prep’s Lower School, was a member of the 2020 Stanley Cup Champion Tampa Bay Lightning. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 Stanley Cup champions were unable to take the cup on family visits and to their hometowns.
The Lightning repeated as Stanley Cup Champions in 2021.
Shattenkirk was greeted at Iona Prep’s Lower School by members of the Iona Prep hockey program; Iona Prep School President Brother Thomas Leto, C.F.C.; Iona Prep’s Lower School Principal Deirdre Mone; and fellow alumni.
Shattenkirk’s mother, Barbara Shattenkirk, is a longtime teacher at Iona Prep.
