Pittsburgh Penguins forward Chris Kunitz had a special guest with him at a dinner party in Chicago, Ill. on Friday: the Stanley Cup.

As part of his time with the Cup after the Penguins won their fourth championship, Kunitz brought it to the Windy City. While there, his family and friends gathered for dinner with hockey's greatest prize.

No meal would be complete without dessert, and the Kunitz family did not hold back, capping off their dinner with a Stanley Cup cake fit for a champion.

It also was a college reunion for Kunitz, who showed off his hardware to his former Ferris State teammates.
