Kings' Quick brings Cup back to Hamden

A small town in Connecticut was the place to be Sunday afternoon.

Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick was back in his hometown of Hamden, Conn., celebrating his second Stanley Cup championship in three seasons. He was met by roughly 2,000 people at Joe Bruno Stadium, where Quick provided fans a chance to see the Cup during a two-hour meet-and-greet session.

Proceeds collected at the event were donated to the education fund for the children of Jason Pagni, a friend of Quick's who died in a car accident in January. Pagni was also a youth coach in the area.

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.

Brown right at home at rink with Stanley Cup

"I remember being down here at 6 in the morning on Mondays and Wednesdays, from the time I was 7 till about 14," Brown told USA Today. "I made a lot of memories in this building, and I thought this would be a pretty cool place to have it."

Miller looking forward to new start with Canucks

New Vancouver Canucks goalie Ryan Miller joined NHL Live to discuss the next chapter of his career.

Miller agreed to a three-year contract worth a reported $6 million per season on July 1.

"It felt good to be wanted," Miller said. "We sat down and had a chance to talk to them about what they saw moving forward as an organization. Obviously I liked what I heard and I like what I see in the group that they've had there, and a few of the young guys coming up, so it just all kind of fell into place where I think it's the right place to be."

Kings staffers McDonough, Fugere split day with Cup

With Los Angeles Kings players and coaches each entitled to a day with the Stanley Cup after winning their second championship in three seasons, certain team staff members will get half a day with the most iconic trophy in sports. That was the case on Monday, when Kings scout Denis Fugere and Hubie McDonough, director of hockey operations for Los Angeles' American Hockey League affiliate, the Manchester Monarchs, split the day with the Cup.

The day started with McDonough bringing the Stanley Cup to Manchester, N.H. The morning was highlighted by an appearance with the Cup at nearby Saint Anselm College, where McDonagh starred as a player for four seasons before going on to play 195 NHL games with the Kings, New York Islanders and San Jose Sharks.

Family ties run strong in opening round of NHL Draft

Sam Reinhart now owns family bragging rights when it comes to the NHL Draft.

Sam became the third member of the Reinhart family to be taken in the first round of the draft when the Buffalo Sabres selected him with the second choice Friday. That's two picks earlier than older brother Griffin Reinhart was taken by the New York Islanders in 2012 and 10 choices earlier than his dad, Paul Reinhart, was taken by the Atlanta Flames in 1979. Another older brother, Max Reinhart, was the 63rd player taken in 2010 when he went to the Calgary Flames.

Reinhart was one of nine players taken in the first round who had family ties to professional hockey:

Stars great Modano talks Hall call on NHL Live

Former Minnesota North Stars and Dallas Stars legend Mike Modano joined NHL Live to discuss his recent induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

A seven-time all-star and the highest-scoring American-born player in NHL history (561 goals, 1,374 points), Modano led the Stars to the Stanley Cup in 1999 and leads all American players with 146 playoff points. He played all but 40 of his 1,499 games, the most by a U.S.-born forward, with the Minnesota/Dallas franchise.

"I still can't believe the call," Modano said. "I was just driving around doing some errands, trying to keep busy, trying not to think about it, and then about a quarter to two Dallas time, I see a 416 (area code) coming across my phone. I couldn't say what I really wanted to say and how much it meant to you. I just had to pull over and kind of collect my thoughts. It's certainly amazing."

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
