The Stanley Cup met the Sunshine State on Friday.
Mike Van Ryn, a St. Louis Blues assistant under coach Craig Berube, had his day with the trophy on a boat with friends and family in St. Augustine, Florida.
Van Ryn and his family started their day on the Matanzas River at St. Augustine, which has been dubbed the nation's oldest port. Van Ryn then hosted a public event in St. Augustine, where he lives in the offseason, and the trophy also was treated to some live bagpipe music at restaurant in northeast Florida.
Van Ryn, a defenseman who reached the NHL with St. Louis in 2000 and played 69 of his 353 career games with the Blues, helped them win the Cup in his first season as an assistant.
"[St. Louis] needed this for a long time," Van Ryn told The London Free Press in June. "To play whatever role in helping them win, I'm pretty pumped about that."
