Kings assistant Stevens brings Cup to Jersey Shore

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- When Los Angeles Kings assistant coach John Stevens had his day with the Stanley Cup in 2012, he took it home to Ontario. Thursday, he brought it to his other home near the beaches of New Jersey, where he spent almost two decades as a player and coach in the Philadelphia Flyers organization

"I was here for 18 years," Stevens said. "My kids grew up here. We have a home in Sea Isle [City]. We won last time in 2012, we wanted to take it home to my family. It meant a lot to them to see it. I thought if we were ever fortunate enough to win it again we'd bring it here because the kids grew up here. So many friends here that we've known for so many years, we'd love the opportunity to share it with them. That's what we're doing. It means a lot."

Kings' Gaborik brings Cup back to Trencin

In what is starting to seem like an annual occurrence, the Stanley Cup touched down to spend the day in Trencin, Slovakia on Friday.

With Los Angeles Kings forward Marian Gaborik escorting the Cup around town, it marked the fifth time in seven years that the most storied trophy in sports has visited the western Slovakian city of about 60,000 residents.

The Cup was first brought to Trencin after Tomas Kopecky won it as a member of the Detroit Red Wings in 2008. Kopecky was joined in 2010 by Marian Hossa when they won the Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks. Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara escorted the Cup to the town after winning his championship in 2011.

Melrose: Upgraded Stars make Central even tougher

One of the greatest things about following the NHL is that, really, the season never stops. The Los Angeles Kings may have won the 2014 Stanley Cup championship, but the calendar has still been busy, and teams are already gearing up for 2014-15. We saw that this past week as major names changed locations during the start of the free-agent signing period.

Here are some of the biggest things I've seen since July 1:

THE STARS ARE SHINING

No team in the League, in my estimation, changed themselves for the better this past week like the Dallas Stars. Adding Jason Spezza in a trade with the Ottawa Senators was the biggest move so far this offseason as far as I'm concerned. This really changes that team. Dallas was already on the upswing, having returned to the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season and looking good doing it. Now though, when you add Spezza and Ales Hemsky to that team, there's another very good team out there in the West. In theory, Dallas has added 60 goals to an already potent offense.

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

Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown spent much of his childhood at Cass Park Rink in Ithaca, N.Y. He thought the Stanley Cup should spend some time there too.

"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."

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.

— San Jose Sharks forward Tommy Wingels on his team's approach entering training camp
