WINNIPEG - The captain of the NHL champion Chicago Blackhawks is bringing a very special visitor home to meet his fans — Lord Stanley's Cup.

Jonathan Toews (TAVES) is bringing the cup to his hometown of Winnipeg for a public celebration before gathering privately with his family.

Toews — and the cup — are to meet with fans this afternoon at a community centre named after the National Hockey League player.

The Blackhawks won hockey's highest honour last month in a dramatic sixth game victory over the Boston Bruins.

Toews scored a goal in the nail-biting 3-2 triumph.

He last brought the cup home when the Blackhawks were Stanley Cup champions in 2010.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
