No autographs allowed on Kane's Stanley Cup tour

Folks hoping to get a look at Patrick Kane and the Stanley Cup on Friday will get their chances, but the times will be brief and won't involve autographs.

The final itinerary was released this afternoon, and a Kane family spokesman stressed that "due to time constraints, Patrick will be unable to provide autographs or sign specific items for the general public.  These visits are governed by NHL rules."

Players get one day with the Cup.

"His public schedule -- which the media will be able to cover -- will highlight our region in many ways and give Patrick an opportunity to share one of sports most coveted trophies with kids, ironworkers as well as police and fire personnel," the statement reads. "Patrick has the Stanley Cup for a limited time, and while he wants to share this opportunity with the community, it is unrealistic to expect that all requests can be accommodated."

Kane will be visiting Niagara Falls' Cave of the Winds at 8:30 a.m., a half-hour before the attraction opens to the public. Kane and the Cup will also spend private time with patients at Roswell Park at 11 a.m. before a visit to steelworkers behind Buffalo General Hospital at 12:30 p.m.

The final stop before private functions will be at New Era Cap Co. on Delaware Avenue from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. The event is for Buffalo Police and Fire department members, and official identification will be required.
