Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews brings Stanley Cup home to Winnipeg

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.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
