Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews spent his first day with the Stanley Cup at home in Winnipeg visiting a children's hospital, a community center, a Canadian Tire store, posing for pictures, signing autographs, enjoying a dinner with his family, and hosting a party for 300 friends.

Then he decided to have a little fun.

The man nicknamed "Captain Serious" took the trophy wakebaording in Kenora, Ontario, near the Manitoba border east of Winnipeg. The city is the connection to the Lake of the Woods.

A photo of the Cup in the boat with Toews trailing was posted Saturday to the Twitter feed @keeperofthecup.

"It was a crazy two days. I don't think I had a spare minute to breathe," Toews said, according to The Associated Press.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
