Brooks Orpik's day with the Stanley Cup was busy, but he found time for the important things: wine and ice cream.

The Washington Capitals defenseman took the trophy around Cohasset, Massachusetts, on Thursday with his wife and two daughters. 

They made a stop at Orpik's new wine cellar and the beach.

Then it was time for a supersized ice cream party that included scoops on scoops in the Cup's bowl, with Orpik's daughter Harlow digging in with a big spoon.
