David Perron and his friends played the highest-stakes street hockey game ever.

The St. Louis Blues forward celebrated his day with the Stanley Cup on Tuesday by hosting a game in Sherbrooke, Quebec, with the trophy as the prize for the winning team.

Perron even invited his buddies on the Blue Team, the apparent winners, to a victory champagne drink as "We Are the Champions" by Queen blared from a set of nearby speakers.

Perron, who had seven goals and 16 points in 26 Stanley Cup Playoff games to help St. Louis win its first championship, spent much of his day with his partner Vanessa Vandal, 4-year-old son Mason, and 2-year-old daughter Victoria. They feasted on cereal, poutine and chocolate milk from the trophy's bowl.

Mason and David shared a few special moments with the Cup. David showed Mason where his name will go on the trophy, and each hoisted his own Cup in a photo op.

Fans began arriving at Palais des Sports, home of the Sherbrooke Phoenix of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, at 5 a.m. to get a glimpse of Perron and the Cup at his public event. He made certain the trophy was buckled in tight for the ride.

He also received a hero's greeting from fans as he and the trophy departed.

Perron spent much of his day sharing the Cup with many in his hometown, but he and the Cup still got to enjoy some quality time together, just the two of them.
