No shortage of photographic moments

LONDON, Ontario -- After a sleepy morning at his parents' home, Los Angeles Kings forward Jeff Carter brought the Stanley Cup out for a brief tour of the city after making a public appearance Thursday.

About 100 employees at EllisDon, where Jeff's mom Sue works, lined up for pictures with Jeff and the Cup on a sweltering hot day. The Clarence Campbell Bowl was also on hand for the festivities.

The only other public stop before a private party at an uncle's house was Stronach Arena, where Carter played his first hockey as a 7-year-old. The ice was replaced with a sport court for summertime ball hockey, so the Cup was set at "centre ice" for some fun pictures.

Carter posed for shots in almost every jersey he's ever worn -- including one he wore when he was 7 that wasn't as ill-fitting as you'd think. Some children passing by saw the Cup and got some unexpected shots with it too.

Check back later for the full story of the day.
