(RAPID CITY, S.D.) – The Rapid City Rush, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes, announced today that the Kelly Cup, the championship trophy for the ECHL, will be in Rapid City for the upcoming weekend series against the Atlanta Gladiators.

Rapid City is the latest stop on what is an eight-city tour for the Kelly Cup. It is scheduled to arrive on Wednesday and will be making appearances around town, at community partners, local landmarks, and media. The Kelly Cup will also be set up in the concourse of The Monument Ice Arena during Rapid City’s games against Atlanta on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
