Blackhawks' van Riemsdyk takes Cup to Jersey Shore

BRICK, N.J. -- Trevor van Riemsdyk had been smiling and taking pictures for 90 minutes Thursday morning when he and the Stanley Cup finally got a break. This should have been the time when van Riemsdyk, the Chicago Blackhawks defenseman celebrating his day with the Cup, got a coffee, sat down, basically took a load off for a few minutes.

No way. Not on this day.

Van Riemsdyk went back into the Zamboni area at the Ocean Ice Palace around 10:45 a.m., near a garage that opened to a back lot, where his dad, Frans, was running the air conditioner in the black Chevy Suburban that would take him to his next stop, his high school, Christian Brothers Academy in Lincroft, N.J.

He was still smiling after taking pictures and sharing the Cup with members of Brick Stars Challenger Hockey, a program for developmentally challenged kids that he and his family support, as he stood and conducted the first of his two interviews while Frans was trying to get the traveling party on the road.

"It's all good," van Riemsdyk said to "I've been smiling all summer."

Robinson, Niedermayer understand Lamoriello's move

Larry Robinson thought he would be with the Montreal Canadiens for the rest of his life, until he went to play for the Los Angeles Kings in 1989. Scott Niedermayer never envisioned leaving the New Jersey Devils, until he signed with the Anaheim Ducks in 2005.

Robinson and Niedermayer each thought of the shock to the system he experienced when changing teams upon hearing the news that friend and former boss Lou Lamoriello left the Devils after 28 years on Thursday to become the general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"It just goes to show you that nothing is forever, especially in the business that we're in," Robinson told in a phone interview. "Who would have ever thought that I would have ended up in L.A.? I thought I would have been a Canadien all my life. Next thing you know, you go somewhere else and you realize there is something somewhere else. Actually, it turned out great for me, and I hope it turns out great for Lou as well."
