It has been such a great summer for Corey Crawford that he could hardly be blamed if he didn't want it to end.

Crawford began the day he earned celebrating with the Stanley Cup in his hometown by agreeing to a six-year contract extension Monday with the Chicago Blackhawks. The deal, which begins when his current pact expires after the 2013-14 season, is reportedly worth $36 million.

Bickell gets key to city on day with Stanley Cup

Chicago Blackhawks forward Bryan Bickell received the key to the city of Orono, Ontario, his hometown, during his day with the Stanley Cup on Tuesday. Bickell brought the Cup to Orono when the Blackhawks last won the Cup in 2010. But because the 6-foot-4 forward figured so prominently in Chicago's 2013 run, this visit by the Cup was extra special.

Bickell posed for photos in front of his town's welcoming sign, which now lists him as a Stanley Cup champion. He also took the trophy fishing near Peterborough, Ontario.

"Unfortunately, we didn't catch a lot of fish. But this is part one, so we're going to make part two another day," Bickell said. "It's nice to have Stanley out on the boat and be out there with it."

Nabokov aims for third trip to Olympics with Russia

Evgeni Nabokov struggled while playing goal for Russia in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, so he is glad to have been one of five netminders invited to Russia Olympic orientation camp.

But Nabokov, who re-signed with the New York Islanders this summer, said the 2014 Sochi Olympics in February aren't the only thing on his mind as he prepares for the season.

"Everyone understands that this is the year of the Olympics, and the Games are very important for the country," the 38-year-old said this week in an interview with R-Sport. "However, you should understand that playing for our own club is no less important. Moreover, one supplements the other here: If you play badly for the club, you will not get to the Olympics.

"Therefore, each of us thinks about playing the first club game and later we will think about the second game, and then, in February, we will think about the Olympics. Now we have to prove to the coaches that we deserve to play on the national team, and I can only do this with the help of [playing well] with the Islanders. Believe me, I will not be thinking 24/7 about the Olympics."

Blackhawks' Kane brings Cup back to Buffalo

A magical summer for Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane ended on a high note when the 2013 Conn Smythe Trophy winner enjoyed his day with the Stanley Cup on Saturday in his hometown of Buffalo.

As he did when he had the Cup in Buffalo in 2010, Kane took the iconic trophy to Niagara Falls, where he posed for photos with friends and family. The trip this year included the Conn Smythe Trophy, which Kane was given as MVP of the Stanley Cup Playoffs after scoring nine goals and 19 points in 23 games.

Chicago Blackhawks assistant coach Jamie Kompon used his day with the Stanley Cup to say "Thank you."

Kompon spent part of his day with the trophy in and around Niagara Falls at the Hotel Dieu Shaver Health and Rehabilitation Centre in St. Catharines, Ontario, where his father is recovering from two strokes suffered during the winter.

"Everybody here had a hand in in getting my dad back to where he is," Kompon said to about 100 staff members, according to Niagarathisweek.com. "To see him like this, it means the world to me. … I thank you guys from the bottom of my heart."

Saad first Pittsburgh-born player to take Cup home

Chicago Blackhawks forward Brandon Saad spent his day with the Stanley Cup in a place familiar with the trophy: Pittsburgh.

But according to the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, Saad is the first Pittsburgh-born and -trained player to win the Cup, which has been won by the Penguins three times.

"I'd be lying if I said this whole thing wasn't more than a little surreal," Saad said Thursday. "But it's great."

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
