Doughty takes Cup for a trip down memory lane

LONDON, Ont. -- The final leg of Drew Doughty's tour took him to his parents home on the other side of town and was a walk down memory lane.

Doughty hopped into his old bed with the Cup. He posed for photos in the bed that features a Los Angeles Kings pillow case and sits next to a nightstand that had a phone with a Kings logo on it.

As if that wasn't enough, Doughty's two jerseys from his days as a small child hung on a dresser -- one of Kelly Hrudey and one of Wayne Gretzky.

Doughty took the Cup into the back yard for more pictures with family members, only this time the Cup had Doughty's gold medal from the 2010 Olympics draped around its neck.

The family took the Cup to its final stop in town -- Forest City National Golf Course. The Cup sat in the clubhouse for two hours for pictures while Doughty signed autographs and posed for pictures of his own.

After that, it was back to Doughty's residence for a private party. More to come later on Doughty's day, including stories from his billet parents and how his grandparents made his career possible.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
