BOSTON (CBS) – It looks like the Stanley Cup is going to need some repairs after a mishap on Tuesday during an appearance in Bonavista, Newfoundland.

Former Boston Bruin Michael Ryder was having his day with the cup when he placed it on a table at the St. John’s Hotel.

The table tipped over and the cup crashed to the ground. A powerful wind may have contributed.

Watch the video:

In a video posted by The Telegram of St. John’s, Ryder, who signed a free-agent contract with the Dallas Stars this summer, could be seen inspecting a visible dent on the side of the cup.

As of right now, it’s unclear when the cup will go in for repairs.

This is hardly the first time the Stanley Cup has been damaged. In fact, Ryder’s new team, the Dallas Stars put a “mystery dent” in the cup back in 1999.

  1. Barry Smith says:

    The province is called ‘Newfoundland’, not ‘New Foundland’… Or, if you want to be even more proper, it’s full name is ‘Newfoundland and Labrador’.

    Yes, it’s the original home of two major breeds of dogs: the big Newfoundland dogs and the ubiquitous Labrador Retriever. Newfoundland is the island part of the province and Labrador is the part attached to Quebec on the Canadian mainland.
