Mitchell takes in a day of fishing with Stanley Cup

Former Los Angeles Kings and current Florida Panthers defenseman Willie Mitchell enjoyed fly fishing with friends in Pitt River, British Columbia, during his day with the Stanley Cup this week.

Mitchell's fishing trip was tame compared to his first experience with the Cup in 2012, when he ascended Mount Benedict to meet his wife, Megan, for a champagne toast.

Mitchell, 37, has played in 795 NHL games for five teams. In 89 Stanley Cup Playoff games he has 16 points, including a goal and three assists with a plus-10 rating in 18 games to help the Kings to their second Stanley Cup in three seasons.

Fraser re-creates family photo on day with Cup

Los Angeles Kings forward Colin Fraser re-created a touching family photo this weekend on his day with the Stanley Cup.

The three-time Cup winner took the Cup to a dock on Sylvan Lake, Alberta, where he, his son and daughter raised the trophy (and replicas) over their heads.

After the Kings' 2012 championship, Colin and his son Calder (then 19 months) each lifted a trophy near the lake. Calder was ill during the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, causing Colin to leave the Kings for a brief time.

"It's been awesome," Greene told the Grand Forks Herald. "It's been a lot of fun coming back here. It's been a whirlwind. ... The Cup brings out the crazy in a lot of people."

Kings trainer Kingsley comes home with Cup

One day after Los Angeles Kings senior adviser and development coach Mike O'Connell showed off the Stanley Cup in front of Pilgrim Arena in Hingham, Mass., head athletic trainer Chris Kingsley basked in the glory of victory with hockey's greatest prize in his hometown of Greenfield, Mass.

The line to greet Kingsley, seated with the Cup in the lobby of Collins-Moylan Arena, stretched across the parking lot, and it was all for a good cause. Fans paid $5 for a photograph with proceeds going to the Franklin County Hockey Association, the league where Kingsley played goalie growing up.

Kings' Nolan has father/son day with Cup

Ted Nolan has his fair share of work to do in order to turn the Buffalo Sabres into Stanley Cup contenders, but thanks to his son he got a visit from the famous trophy this week.

Jordan Nolan, who has won the Stanley Cup twice in three seasons as a fourth-line wing for the Los Angeles Kings, received the trophy Thursday in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, and took the opportunity to spend some quality time with dad.

Although Ted Nolan has not won the Stanley Cup yet in his coaching career, he did win the Jack Adams Trophy during his first stint coaching the Sabres in the mid-90s, leading to a picture in which father and son posed with their respective hardware.

Jordan Nolan was set to be honored Friday during ceremonies in Garden River, including a trip through town parading the Cup on a fire department vehicle.

Kings' Regehr jets to Calgary, Saskatchewan with Cup

It took Los Angeles Kings defenseman Robyn Regehr 15 NHL seasons before he got to hoist the Stanley Cup for the first time in June. When the veteran got his day with the Cup this week, he chartered a jet to make sure as many people as possible got the opportunity to share the moment with him.

He first received the Cup on Monday before jetting to his adopted hometown of Calgary. Regehr was selected by the Colorado Avalanche in the first round (No. 19) of the 1998 NHL Draft, but he spent his first 11 seasons playing with the Calgary Flames. Having laid down considerable roots in the city, Regehr brought the Cup to Calgary, where he enjoyed a series of private events with friends, including a party at a local bowling alley.

Kings' Stoll helps raise money for Saskatoon hospital

Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan has benefitted greatly over the years thanks to the generosity of Los Angeles Kings forward Jarret Stoll. On top of that, it got a visit from the Stanley Cup on Sunday.

Stoll paid a visit to the hospital during his day with the Cup, spending time with children and their families as part of a fundraiser that proved quite successful.

In a picture tweeted by the Kings, the 32-year-old is seen posing with a young boy and Lord Stanley's trophy. On a stand nearby is a check for $1 million from the Jarret Stoll Patient Comfort Fund Endowment for Children.

Kings forward Richards brings Cup back to Kenora

Los Angeles Kings forward Mike Richards got to enjoy his second day with the Stanley Cup in the past three years Friday. As he did in 2012, he brought the most iconic trophy in sports to Kenora, Ontario for a quiet day on the lake.

Located about 124 miles east of Winnipeg in northwestern Ontario, Kenora saw hundreds of its citizens come out to again get up close with the Stanley Cup. Fans from around the region lined the streets as Richards led a modest parade through town.

"He's an amazing hockey player, he's from Kenora and he wins the Stanley Cup lots," young fan Mason Prefontaine told the Kenora Daily Miner and News.

Standing on the bed of a white pickup truck, Richards was driven alongside the Cup and the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl, which the Kings received after defeating the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference Final.

Kings scout McEwen brings Cup to hometown

When the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup for the first time in 2012, Brent McEwen, the team's amateur scout for Western Canada, brought the trophy to Saskatoon, the largest city in Saskatchewan. To celebrate the Kings' victory this June, McEwen brought the Cup to a much quainter location.

Wednesday, he hosted the Cup in Whitewood, Saskatchewan, his rural hometown of fewer than 1,000 people located in the southeastern region of the province. It was a far cry from Saskatoon, where McEwen worked for a decade at the University of Saskatchewan before becoming general manager of the Saskatoon Blades in the Western Hockey League.

"When I had it in Saskatoon, I had it at the university where I worked for a number of years. I thought if we ever won it again, I would really like to bring it back here when I grew up and my family still lives," McEwen told NHL.com. "It's really a great opportunity for people to get close to the Cup. That's what it's all about. Sharing it with people I grew up with in an area I grew up in. It's great."

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
