Kings' Murray enjoys quiet day with Stanley Cup

The Stanley Cup made a visit to the Maritimes on Monday as development consultant Glen Murray got his day with the trophy in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia.

It was a low-key day for Murray, who celebrated the arrival of the Cup with a gathering at his home.

"We had a nice, quiet day back at the cottage," Murray said in a video published on SouthShoreNow.ca. "A few people, some family and friends. Sit and stare at it."

The only public appearance for the Cup was at the Best Western Plus Hotel and Convention Centre in Bridgewater, where fans were able to take pictures with it.

"A lot of hockey fans, a lot of people know what the Cup is," Murray said. "It's great. It's awesome. ... I'm lucky to bring it here today."

Kings' Pearson brings Cup home to Kitchener

Los Angeles Kings forward Tanner Pearson grew up playing minor-league hockey in Kitchener, Ontario. He returned there as a champion Sunday when he brought the Stanley Cup to Civic Square in front of Kitchener City Hall before an estimated crowd of nearly 2,000 people, according to the Waterloo Region Record.

Fans lined up to have their photo taken with the Cup, meet Pearson, and play interactive games presented by Kitchener Minor Hockey and the Kitchener Rangers with donations being collected to benefit the Ronald McDonald House in Hamilton, Ontario.

"It was a dream come true," Pearson told the Record. "It's an honor to be able to bring it back. It's pretty special to celebrate it with the people that you grew up with. It's a great turnout."

Kings more comfortable planning travels for Cup

The Los Angeles Kings have mapped out a Summer with Stanley for the second time in two years. This time, it got off to an interesting start.

According to a detailed account on the Kings website, assistant general manager Rob Blake, a member of the planning team, took a phone call that could have been part of the extensive scheduling.

Instead, it was to tell him he had been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame.

"A smile on his face, Blake takes the call and excuses himself for several minutes, though he ultimately returns to help with the planning," the story by Jon Rosen said.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.

— San Jose Sharks forward Tommy Wingels on his team's approach entering training camp
