Third Stanley Cup ring for May

Former Chilliwack Bruins GM Darrell May is collecting the bling as a scout for the Chicago Blackhawks.

Former Chilliwack Bruins general manager Darrell May will receive a third Stanley Cup ring after his Chicago Blackhawks beat the Tampa Bay Lighting Tuesday night.

Chicago’s 2-0 win on home ice gave them their third National Hockey League championship in the last five years.

May had perfect timing when he joined the Blackhawks as an amateur scout in 2009. The team won the first of their titles the following spring and also claimed the 2013 crown.

But May doesn’t get much time to celebrate.

A scouts’ life gets busy in June as the NHL entry draft nears.

This year’s draft is next weekend at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL.
