Seabrook shares day with Cup with newborn son

Carter Seabrook waited his whole life -- 14 days -- for his first visit with the Stanley Cup.

Carter's dad, Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook, spent his day with the trophy Friday, and Carter, born Aug. 16, was front and center in several pictures and videos.

Seabrook and his wife, Dayna, were in his hometown of Tsawwassen, British Columbia. The day started at the South Delta Recreation Centre, where Seabrook greeted fans and youth players, according to Globalnews.ca. They also met with Mayor Lois E. Jackson.

Seabrook then visited Cavalier Jewellers in the Gastown section of Vancouver, owned by his brother Keith, to pose for pictures at a private event.

Seabrook and the Cup later traveled to Kelowna.

Seabrook's son has the middle name Seven, the jersey number his father wears in Chicago.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
