Cup is guest of honor at Blackhawks Convention

On a team consisting of several star players, it was the Stanley Cup that was the guest of honor as the Chicago Blackhawks opened their annual team convention Friday at the Hilton Chicago. To open the three-day event celebrating the team, the Cup was brought out at the convention's opening ceremony, where it received thunderous applause from attendees.

From there, Blackhawks national anthem singer Jim Cornelison sang another thunderous rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" as team officials and some military veterans looked on. And with that, the sixth annual Blackhawks convention was underway, this time with a very special guest who had been noticeably absent the previous two years.

Surprise party caps trainer's day with Cup

So far this summer, Chicago Blackhawks players and staff have hoisted the Stanley Cup all over North America. Wednesday, one of the team's longest-serving employees took the opportunity to bring the Cup back to Chicago.

Blackhawks head athletic trainer and Chicago native Mike Gapski brought the Cup to the suburb of Crestwood, Ill., giving several local fans the chance to see the most iconic trophy in all of sports.

A long day with the Cup started early in the morning at Incarnation Catholic Parish, where Gapski is a parishioner. Gapski, entering his 26th season with the team, brought the Cup to the church when the Blackhawks won it in 2010, and fans started camping outside the building at dawn for a chance to see the trophy this time around. After a morning spent at the church, the scene shifted to a much larger meet-and-greet.

Smith takes Stanley Cup back to school

For Ben Smith, his day with the Stanley Cup involved a trip home.

The Chicago Blackhawks forward, who played one game in the 2013 Stanley Cup Final, took the Cup to an event at Westminster School in Simsbury, Conn., on Tuesday, near where he grew up in Avon.

"It's special for me," Smith told the Hartford Courant. "I grew up here, since I was 3 years old, playing youth hockey here, coming to Westminster. It's just a nicer event for us to be out in the public for a bit and share it with some people that were always there for me growing up and who I learned to play hockey from. I grew so much as a person here at the school, it's just really nice to be able to bring the trophy back."

Carcillo enjoys another day with Stanley Cup

Daniel Carcillo enjoyed a perfect day with the Stanley Cup on Sunday when he brought the most iconic trophy in sports to his hometown of King City, Ontario, about 25 miles north of Toronto.

The day's festivities started with photos of the Cup resting on the hood of a vintage 1964 Lincoln. From there, Carcillo was scheduled to meet with locals at the King City Community Centre, where area residents could meet the Chicago Blackhawks forward and pose for photographs with the Cup.

It wasn't the first time this summer Carcillo enjoyed a fun moment with the Cup. On June 28, he brought the Cup onstage during a concert featuring the legendary Canadian band Rush at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, Ill. Carcillo carried the Cup to each member of the band, who later posed for photographs with the trophy following their performance.

The ad read as follows:

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
