Pittsburgh Penguins forward Carl Hagelin received a hero's welcome when he brought the Stanley Cup to his hometown of Södertälje, Sweden, on Friday.
Hagelin's day with the Cup included a stop at the Södertälje Sportklubb, a Swedish pro club in the J20 SuperElit Sodra, where he played for two seasons before joining the University of Michigan in 2007.
Hagelin had some alone time with the Cup, and also shared the day with his brother, Bobbie, a retired pro hockey player in Sweden.
The Penguins forward also held a large outdoor reception with the Cup in nearby Nykvarn.
Hagelin, who was traded from the Anaheim Ducks to the Penguins on Jan. 18, proved to be a key piece in Pittsburgh's run to the Cup. He had 27 points in 37 regular-season games and six goals and 16 points in 24 postseason games for the Penguins.
