LONDON, Ont. -- The handoff of the Stanley Cup between London boys and Los Angeles Kings teamates Drew Doughty and Jeff Carter took place at about 8:30 a.m. this morning, with the Hall of Fame's Mike Bolt driving the Cup across town to Carter's parents' house.
Carter has nothing public planned with the Cup today. He and Doughty shared the spotlight Thursday at a ceremony at City Hall and John Labatt Center, home of the London Knights.
Friends, family and Carter's billet family from his time at Sault Ste. Marie in the OHL are enjoying a quiet party in the back yard. The Cup will make a trip to the workplace of Jeff's mom, Sue, and make another trip the home of Jeff's uncle for a private get together.
There will also be a stop at Stronach Arena, where Jeff played as kid.
