Gunnarsson brings Stanley Cup to Örebro, Sweden

by Chris Pinkert / St. Louis Blues

The Stanley Cup has made its way to Europe.

First up is Carl Gunnarsson, whose day with Lord Stanley included delivering it to his parents' house near Örebro, Sweden, where the Gunnarssons posed for family pictures before the kids enjoyed a cold bowl (cup?) of strawberry lemonade.

Gunnarsson also brought the Stanley Cup to the practice facility where he learned to play the game. There, some youth hockey players were participating in summer camps and got an up-close-and-personal look at the most coveted trophy in sports.

Gunnarsson also held a public event in the main square, where the public got to take a photo with the Cup.

Below are some photos from the day, some courtesy of Örebro Hockey.
