Stanley Cup Returns To Avon Old Farms AVON, Conn. – On Sunday, August 20, 2017, the Stanley Cup will be making a second public appearance at Avon Old Farms School, in Avon, courtesy of NHL player and Avon alumnus Nick Bonino '07. Bonino, who grew up in Farmington, played high school hockey at Avon Old Farms under coach John Gardner. While at Avon Old Farms, Bonino captained a New England Championship hockey team his senior year. He went on to play in college for Boston University, during which he helped lead the team to a NCAA National Championship. Before joining the Penguins, Bonino also played for the Vancouver Canucks and Anaheim Ducks. Most recently, Bonino signed a 4-year contract with the Nashville Predators. The 2017 Championship was the Penguins’ fifth Stanley Cup win. As a member of the cup winner, Bonino was given the chance to have the cup for a day — an NHL custom that plays out year after year. To raise money for the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, this year Bonino will be charging $10 per person (regardless of age) for admission - cash only, and is limited the showing to the first 3,000 people. Showing will begin promptly at 10:30 a.m. and will end at 12:30 p.m. Bonino will be visiting the Center immediately after the event at Avon Old Farms.
