Blackhawks goalie coach takes Cup to local hospital

by NHL.com Staff / NHL.com

Chicago Blackhawks goaltending coach Jimmy Waite started his day with the Stanley Cup by bringing it to a hospital in his hometown of Sherbrooke, Quebec.

Waite posed for pictures and signed autographs for children.

Waite, who was selected by the Blackhawks in the first round (No. 8) of the 1987 NHL Draft and played with them for eight seasons, finished his first season as goaltending coach with Chicago. Under his guidance, the Blackhawks tied for the League lead in fewest goals allowed (189) last season, and Corey Crawford (along with Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens) won the Jennings Trophy.
