Blackhawks' Crawford takes Cup home to Quebec

by NHL.com Staff / NHL.com

Corey Crawford took the Stanley Cup home to Chateauguay, Quebec, on Sunday for the second time in his NHL career.

The 30-year-old Chicago Blackhawks goalie had the Cup outside his alma mater, Howard S. Billings Regional High School, for about three hours, posing for pictures with residents of the Montreal suburb next to the iconic championship trophy.

"I'm really proud to be from Chateauguay," Crawford told the crowd. "I've met a lot of great people over the years. A lot of people have helped me out through my career. I just want to say thank you and I really appreciate it."

Crawford was 13-6-1 with a 2.31 goals-against average, a .924 save percentage and two shutouts in the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs to help Chicago win its third championship in six seasons.

He got to celebrate with the Cup in his hometown nearly two months earlier than he did in 2013, when he waited till Sept. 2 after Chicago defeated the Boston Bruins in six games in the Final in June.

Crawford went 16-7-1 with a 1.84 GAA and .932 save percentage in the 2013 postseason to win the Cup for the first time in his career.
