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.

Sharp takes Stanley Cup home to Thunder Bay

For the second time in four seasons, the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup. That means forward Patrick Sharp got to bring the iconic trophy to Thunder Bay, Ontario for the second time since 2010.

In what citizens of Thunder Bay hope will continue to be a tradition, Sharp brought the Cup to his hometown, which is located roughly 900 miles northwest of Toronto.

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.

The man responsible for overseeing all aspects of the club's day-to-day operations, Wirtz enjoyed a two-day, three-city trip with the Cup and fit in as many activities as possible.

Quote of the Day

I don’t know if it was more relief for me that [Stamkos] scored or the power play scored. It was a whole compilation of Alka Seltzer.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper after Steven Stamkos broke a long scoring drought and Tampa Bay's struggling power play scored four times in Game 2 at Montreal
