NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, former hockey greats and other dignitaries will unveil a 21-foot-tall, 6,600-pound Stanley Cup fountain in New York’s Times Square on Wednesday. It’ll double as a working water fountain.
The event will coincide with the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

- The Stanley Cup fountain will feature 12 industrial fountain pop jets in the upper bowl.
- The jets will shoot water six feet above the Cup.
- You’ll be able to drink water at the base of the fountain with reusable souvenir cups.
- The fountain will pump 120 gallons of water per minute.
By the way, the actual Stanley Cup is just a little less than 3 feet tall (35 and 1/4 inches) and weighs about 32 pounds.
