Nick Suzuki was banned from touching the Stanley Cup by his Father

This sport is full of superstitions and unwritten rules. Nick Suzuki's father, Rob, established one during a family visit to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. The latter banned his boys from touching the Stanley Cup in, let's think, the hope that the two young men could touch it the right way at some point in their careers.

This kind of superstition was seen Thursday night at the Bell Center in the Canadiens' victory against the Golden Knights. The Canadiens did not touch the Clarence S. Campbell Trophy awarded to the winner of the semi-final series.

Few teams celebrate with either the Clarence S. Campbell Trophy or the Prince of Wales Trophy awarded to the champions of the Western Association or the Eastern Association. Usually, players keep a little embarrassment in their celebration, not lifting the won trophy, not wanting to hurt their chances of winning top honors in the next series.

Like the formations mentioned above, Rob Suzuki instilled this superstition in his children and today, one of them will have the chance to compete in order to finally be able to lift it. It only remains to hope that Nick will be able to touch the big trophy and finally, to benefit his family and prove his father right!
