Stanley Cup makes stops in Sweden, Slovakia

The Stanley Cup continued the European part of its summer with stops in Sweden and Slovakia over the past few days.

Forward Viktor Stalberg had his day with the trophy in Gotherburg, Sweden, on Tuesday after it spent time with forward Marcus Kruger, who celebrated with friends and family at The Soap Bar in Stockholm.

Kruger was joined by defenseman Johnny Oduya, who earlier in the week celebrated with friends at Café Opera in Stockholm. Some in attendance were teammates from Oduya's childhood.

Forward Marian Hossa ate pirogis made by his mother out of the Cup during his weekend with the trophy in Slovakia. His neighbor in Trencin, Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara, made an appearance and took a picture with the Cup alongside Hossa.

Chicago defeated Boston in six games to win the championship.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
