The Greatest Trophy in All of Sports headed to the tallest lighthouse in all of Canada.

Montreal Canadiens forward Cedric Paquette, who played 61 games for the 2019-20 Tampa Bay Lightning, got his day with the Cup to Cap-des-Rosiers Lighthouse in his hometown of Gaspe, Quebec.

The Cap-des-Rosiers stands 112 feet (34.1 meters) tall and is located at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River. It became a protected federal landmark in 1973.

Paquette was traded to the Ottawa Senators during the 2019-20 season and was dealt to the Carolina Hurricanes in February of 2021. He signed a one-year contract with the Canadiens this offseason.
