Bruins' Pastrnak having fun at rookie camp

It didn't take long for David Pastrnak, the Boston Bruins top pick at the 2014 NHL Draft (No. 25) to make an impression on his new teammates.

"He's just a big goofball," fellow forward Matthew Lindblad told NHL.com correspondent Matt Kalman on Thursday. "And we're going to have a lot of fun over the next week."

After off-ice testing and a practice Thursday, Pastrnak joined his teammates for a trip to Antioch, Tenn., where they will join the Nashville Predators, Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers at a rookie tournament that run Sept. 13-16.

"It was great, learning a little bit of experience not just on the ice but off the ice too," Pastrnak said. "Seeing how they are out on the ice, and that's going to give me a lot. So I'm happy that I could practice with them, and also I was trying to take as much of the experience as I could."

Kings broadcaster Bob Miller has evening with Cup

When Los Angeles Kings' Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Miller found out he would be spending an evening with the Stanley Cup, he made sure to invite some longtime friends to the party.

One of the first people he invited to the festivities was Nashville Predators play-by-play man Pete Weber, who served as a Kings television and radio analyst alongside Miller from 1978-81. The longtime friends go as far back as their college broadcasting days when Miller was at the University of Wisconsin and Weber was at Notre Dame.

"He called us when the date was set in stone and asked if we could make it out. We said we'll make it. It might have taken 10 seconds for us to say yes," Weber said. "It was a tremendous situation. And I was very careful, I did not touch the Cup."

Robitaille closes Cup's week in Southern California

After months of crisscrossing the globe to spend time with Los Angeles Kings players and staff, the Stanley Cup made its return to Southern California last week.

It started on Tuesday when the Cup visited South Park Studios, where the show's creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, got to spend some time with the most iconic trophy in sports. The Cup made a similar stop to the South Park offices after the Kings won the franchise's first championship in 2012.

Kings GM Lombardi celebrates with Snoopy

Los Angeles Kings general manager Dean Lombardi put the Stanley Cup in the doghouse over the weekend.

Not just any dog's house, though. Lombardi took the Cup to Santa Rosa, Calif., on Sunday and to the Charles M. Schulz Museum. Schulz is most famous for penning the "Peanuts" comic strip, and Hockey Hall of Fame Keeper of the Cup Phil Pritchard photographed Lombardi with the Cup in Snoopy's dog house.

Schulz, as Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times noted, was an avid hockey fan.

Kings assistant Payne returns home with Cup

Still basking in the glow of winning the Stanley Cup for the first time, Los Angeles Kings assistant coach Davis Payne wanted to bring hockey's ultimate prize back home to Kamloops, British Columbia. He received his opportunity this weekend when he returned to the place he still considers his hometown despite spending most of his time in Southern California.

"It's a chance now to pay it back and celebrate and share all this stuff with everybody that was an important part of it all the way along," Payne told KamloopsThisWeek.com in June. "All the coaches in Kamloops, all the friends and teammates that I have that are still there,"

I didn't even know how to celebrate. I threw my hands up, they gave me a hug, so I guess that's all I needed.
