St. Louis Blues goalie Ville Husso was in Finland with the Stanley Cup and if you didn't know that before, you will after seeing one particular picture.

Husso wanted to give IFK Helsinki and its affiliated junior clubs a chance to see the Greatest Trophy in All of Sports, so that's precisely what he did.
