The Flyers haven’t brought the Stanley Cup back to Philadelphia since 1975, but for the second year in a row the most hallowed trophy in sports will be in Atlantic City.

Former Flyer Justin Williams, who won the Cup this year with the Los Angeles Kings, will bring the trophy to Caesars Atlantic City on Thursday. Williams spends his offseasons in Ventnor.

Every year, each member of the Cup-winning team gets to spend one day with the trophy.

Last year, former Flyer Dennis Seidenberg brought the Cup to Caesars after winning it with the Boston Bruins. Seidenberg lives in Margate in the offseason.

On Thursday, the Cup will be in the Caesars lobby from 2:30-4:30 p.m. In addition to Williams, Kings assistant coach John Stevens and former Flyer Todd Fedoruk are expected to be in attendance. Stevens previously was the Flyers’ head coach and also briefly served as an assistant at St. Augustine Prep, where his son, John, played.

The event will be open to the public, and fans are encouraged to take pictures with the Cup, according to a Caesars news release.

“In this day and age, viewing the Stanley Cup is a unique opportunity for NHL fans and Caesars customers,” Caesars president Don Marrandino said in the news release. “We are grateful that Justin has chosen to spend his time at Caesars Atlantic City for his day with the Cup.”
