Pheonix Copley and Colton Parayko won the Stanley Cup with Washington (2018) and St. Louis (2019) respectively. On Wednesday, the two hockey players held an autograph signing and met with fans at the Alaska Goldpanners’ “Hockey Night” at Growden Memorial Park.

“It is awesome, it is a tight-knit community, and the hockey community is great,” Copley said to KTVF11. “We get a lot of support it is awesome to be a part of something like this. I had so much help growing up from the community, so any way I can give back and help out, it’s great. It’s awesome to see kids who have dreams like that and any way I can help and inspire them is awesome.”
