Sutter combines Cup with Ice Bucket Challenge

Los Angeles Kings coach Darryl Sutter combined his day with the Stanley Cup with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge at his family's farm in Alberta this weekend.

Sutter held the most iconic trophy in sports while ice water was poured on him from the barn above.

Sutter, who won his second Cup as coach of the Kings in three seasons, posed for a family photo with his mother and brothers, a total of eight Stanley Cup wins.

The Ice Bucket Challenge was part of Ryan Van Asten's day with the Cup, also in Alberta. The Kings strength and conditioning coach used the trophy to pour water onto his friend Kyle, who has ALS.

The Cup spent the first part of this Alberta trip with Kings defenseman Jeff Schultz, who made several stops with it: Ronald McDonald House, and the Calgary police and fire departments.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
