Kings Insider provides map tracking the Cup

In just one month since the Los Angeles Kings captured the franchise's first championship, the Stanley Cup has already traveled hundreds of miles through four different countries. The grand trophy even graced the red carpet, alongside Kings captain Dustin Brown, at the Hollywood premiere of "The Amazing Spider-Man."

But perhaps nothing captures the incredible travels of the Cup quite like the map created by Kings Insider Rich Hammond.

A beat reporter for the Kings' website, Hammond has created a Cup tracker on Google Maps, which he has updated regularly since the Kings captured the Cup at Staples Center on June 11. In the month he's been tracking the comings and goings of the most legendary trophy in sports, Hammond has marked spots on the customized map for events like Brown's appearance on "The Tonight Show," the team's visit to Dodger Stadium, a stop at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas, and days with Slava Voynov and Andrei Loktionov in Russia.

Links to the tracker are available at LAKingsInsider.com and the map is updated regularly by Hammond.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
