Crawford adds contract extension to day with Cup

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."

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.

"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."

Mayers celebrates with Stanley Cup in St. Louis

Veteran forward Jamal Mayers didn't dress for the Chicago Blackhawks during their playoff run to the Stanley Cup Final, where they defeated the Boston Bruins in six games. But the Toronto native's leadership in his quest to win the Cup for the first time proved crucial even if he didn't get to play.

That leadership was rewarded Wednesday when the 38-year-old enjoyed his day with the Stanley Cup in St. Louis, the adopted hometown where Mayers spent his first nine NHL seasons.

Quenneville, Stanley Cup host Whalers reunion

During a party along Lake Michigan with the Stanley Cup on full display, Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville hosted some familiar faces. After carrying the Cup around Chicago, including stops at a local post office where he posed for photos, the man known as Coach Q ended the day with a big boat party on Lake Michigan.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville celebrates the Stanley Cup with former Hartford teammates Ron Francis (behind Cup) and Kevin Dineen (far right) (photo courtesy @KeeperoftheCup)

The party gave Quenneville an opportunity to enjoy a small reunion with his former Hartford Whalers teammates. Before embarking on his successful coaching career, Quenneville played seven seasons in Hartford. The club never won the Stanley Cup in Hartford, although the franchise enjoyed its first Cup win in 2006 as the Carolina Hurricanes.

With Quenneville and the Cup playing host Monday night, a number of former Whalers enjoyed a night on the lake. Those in attendance included longtime captain and current Carolina vice president of hockey operations Ron Francis, and Florida Panthers coach Kevin Dineen.

Prior to spending the day with Quenneville, the Cup was in Europe for a couple of weeks before spending this past Sunday with Jay Blunk, the Blackhawks executive vice president.

Stanley Cup spends eventful few days in Sweden

When players get their day with the Stanley Cup, they always, without exception, take it back to where they started. Square one. The four Swedish members of the Chicago Blackhawks who had a date with the Cup this summer gladly continued that tradition.

Blackhawks defenseman Johnny Oduya greeted the Stanley Cup at the Stockholm airport Sunday then rushed it to a dinner with family and friends, guys he's played with since he was a kid. By 10 the following morning, he was hoisting the Cup in Zinkensdamm, his childhood rink in downtown Stockholm, just like he used to hoist red pylons as a child, imagining this moment would come someday.

After that, Oduya took the Cup to the outdoor rink next door, where hundreds of people lined up to take photos with the most iconic trophy in sports.

"I hope that seeing the Cup will inspire them. I don’t remember exactly how old I was when I saw the Cup at the Hockey Hall of Fame, maybe 12, but I remember it was cool," Oduya told Hockeysverige.se.

Rozsival celebrates with Cup in Czech Republic

VLAŠIM, Czech Republic -- A year ago, defenseman Michal Rozsival was an unrestricted free agent considering his options after 11 seasons in the NHL. He chose to sign with the Chicago Blackhawks because he felt there was a very good chance he could become an NHL champion.

It turns out he was right. He celebrated his first Stanley Cup win with the Blackhawks in June and on Wednesday added to those memories when he brought the Cup to his home in the Czech Republic.

"It's great to see the Cup again," Rozsival told reporters in Vlašim, a small town located in the central region of the country.

Frolik welcomes Stanley Cup to Czech Republic

KLADNO, Czech Republic -- Since being involved in a draft-day trade at the end of June, Michael Frolik has been a member of the Winnipeg Jets. But Tuesday, the Stanley Cup champion was a Chicago Blackhawk for one more day.

The Stanley Cup arrived in the Czech wing's hometown of Kladno, about 25 miles west of Prague, and its suburban village, Kamenné Žehrovice, to honor one of the two Czech countrymen who celebrated a championship in June with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Wednesday, the trophy will appear in the central village of Vlašim, the hometown of Blackhawks defenseman Michal Rozsival.

"It's a big day for me. I am definitely enjoying it," Frolik said after the Cup arrived in the Czech Republic from Chicago. "I came to the airport to welcome the Cup by myself, then we brought it to my house. I am glad we had it at home first and could take some pictures with my family."

Blackhawks CEO McDonough spends day at park

Chicago Blackhawks president and CEO John McDonough spent 24 years working for the Chicago Cubs before joining the Blackhawks in 2007. So it seems somehow appropriate McDonough would take the Stanley Cup to the park where he grew up playing Little League baseball.

That's what happened Saturday, when for the second time in three years McDonough brought the most iconic trophy in sports to a public event held at Brooks Park in the Edison Park neighborhood of northern Chicago.

New Maple Leaf Bolland takes Cup home to Toronto

Less than a week after scoring the Stanley Cup-winning goal for the Chicago Blackhawks against the Boston Bruins in Game 6 of the Final, forward Dave Bolland started a new chapter in his career when he was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs for three draft picks.

The move surprised many, but it made Bolland's day with the Stanley Cup on Thursday extra special -- one of the newest members of the Maple Leafs got to bring the iconic trophy to Toronto.

The day proved to be a whirlwind for the center, who also brought the Cup to Toronto when he won it with Chicago in 2010. The highlight was a parade through the streets of the Toronto neighborhood of Mimico, where Bolland grew up. Through a crowd conspicuously made up of Maple Leafs fans, Bolland, in a blue t-shirt and riding atop a fire truck, carried the trophy through town.

"Having some fun today, trying to enjoy it," Bolland said, according to the Toronto Star. "It’s great to bring it back and have fun with the crowd. Whenever we bring the Cup, it’s always a good time. It’s a bunch of hardworking people who like to have fun."

Bollig returns to roots with Stanley Cup in St. Louis

ST. PETERS, Mo. -- Born and raised in suburban St. Louis, there are several places Chicago Blackhawks forward Brandon Bollig could spend his day with the Stanley Cup.

Sure, there are favorite local establishments Bollig has frequented in his time, but more obvious would be the Gateway Arch, St. Louis' greatest landmark, along with Busch Stadium, home of Bollig's favorite baseball team, the St. Louis Cardinals.

Sure enough, Bollig was able to get to both Wednesday, but two other special spots didn't involve anything lavish. For the 26-year-old, spending Wednesday with children in the hospital, as well as visiting the place where his hockey roots were built, was enough satisfaction.

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.

So it was quite a triumphant return for Kitchen on Sunday when he brought the Stanley Cup to his hometown for an eventful day of giving back to the local community.

The morning started with a parade taking Kitchen and the Cup through the streets of nearby Schomberg. The victory procession delivered Kitchen and the Cup to the Trisan Center, home of the minor hockey organization that the longtime NHL assistant first became involved with as a child.

Toews eager for games in hometown Winnipeg

WINNIPEG -- It seemed only fitting that the NHL released its 2013-14 schedule on the same day Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews brought the Stanley Cup to his hometown.

The League's realignment for the upcoming season moves the Winnipeg Jets into the Central Division alongside Toews' Blackhawks. Chicago's Nov. 2 visit to MTS Centre will be Toews' first game in Winnipeg as an NHL player. It's a game he's already looking forward to.

Jets legend Thomas Steen praises Toews

WINNIPEG -- When Jonathan Toews brought the Stanley Cup to Winnipeg in the summer of 2010, the city renamed the Dakota Community Center in his honor. Friday, when the Chicago Blackhawks captain brought the Cup to the arena that now bears his name, he may have received an even greater honor.

In front of hundreds of locals clamoring for an opportunity to meet Toews and see the Cup, Chicago's star center was introduced by another Winnipeg hockey legend. Longtime Winnipeg Jets star Thomas Steen, who now serves as a city councilor in the area, did not mince words as he welcomed Toews to the stage.

"You are making everybody here proud," Steen told the two-time Cup winner in front of the cheering crowd. "Many young kids come here filled with the same dreams you once had and can sit in the same locker room carrying the same dreams."

Toews visits community in early portion of Cup day

On the day the city of Winnipeg welcomed back prodigal son Jonathan Toews, the Chicago Blackhawks captain made sure to take time to give back to the city's children.

During his day with the Stanley Cup in Winnipeg, Toews started it with a special appearance with city officials at the local Canadian Tire department store. In a presentation outside the storefront, Toews gave out complementary Blackhawks t-shirts to the children in attendance before answering some questions.

One curious boy got a nice cheer from the partisan crowd after asking Toews which team he would want to play for other than Chicago.

Travelers lucky enough to be passing through the James Armstrong Richardson International Airport in Winnipeg on Friday morning were greeted by a surprise. It was there that Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews -- flanked by family, friends and local police -- welcomed the Stanley Cup to the city for Toews' visit with the trophy.

After spending the previous day with Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw in Belleville, Ontario, the Cup made its way to Winnipeg along with the Frank J. Selke Trophy, which Toews was awarded last month as the Most Valuable Player of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Moments after lifting the Cup from its protective case and posing for some photographs, Toews was greeted by a spontaneous eruption of cheers from people throughout the airport. Not a bad start to two days with the trophy.

"We just took some photos and relaxed with it," Leddy told the newspaper. "It was awesome being able to share it with them because I wouldn't be here without their support."

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.
