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.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
