Cal Foote (left) and Luke Schenn lift the Stanley Cup
Two other former Kelowna Rockets will have their names inscribed on Lord Stanley’s cup.
Tampa Bay defensemen Luke Schenn and Cal Foote will both be immortalized on the Stanley Cup following the Lightning’s 1-0 win over Montreal on Wednesday night.
Neither Schenn nor Foote made it to the Stanley Cup Final, however, they both played enough games during the regular season to qualify and have their names engraved on the cup. And both had the chance to take a winning lap with the cup.

Schenn played in 38 regular season games, while Foote played 35 in his rookie campaign. In order to qualify for your name engraved on the Stanley Cup, players must participate in either half of the team’s regular season games or at least one game of the final.
For Schenn, this is his second straight Stanley Cup victory, having been a member of last year’s Lightning victory.
This is the third time in a row for the Schenn family, after his brother Brayden won the cup as a member of the St. Louis Blues in 2019.
Foote joins his father Adam on the cup.
Adam Foote won the Stanley Cup Championships with the Colorado Avalanche in 1996 and 2001.
The addition of Cal Foote brings the number of former Rockets with their names on the Stanley Cup to eight.
He joins Scott Parker (2001), Travis Moen (2007), Duncan Keith (2010, 2013, 2015), Kim Dillabaugh (2012, 2014), Kyle Cumisky (2015) and Madison Bowey (2018).
