If you are going to take the Stanley Cup home to Canada, might as well enjoy a Canadian delicacy out of it.

St. Louis Blues defenseman Joel Edmundson brought the Cup home to Brandon, Manitoba, and enjoyed some poutine out of it.

Edmundson's first stop was at Joe Beeverz Bar & Grill, where he had the bite to eat.

But you can't eat like that unless you are going to burn some calories as well, which he did at a gym, the UCT Pavilion in the Keysone Centre, where his No. 6 jersey hung on the wall.

He also visited his old locker room, the home of the Brandon Wheat Kings, his Midget AAA team and met up with his old coach.

Edmundson also took the Greatest Trophy in All of Sports to a local hospital to meet some fans.
