After the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the San Jose Sharks to win the Stanley Cup on June 12, players celebrated and posed for countless pictures with their respective families.
Not surprisingly, dad was a main figure in many of those moments.
On Father's Day, NHL players and teams honored the men who helped get their sons to this point in their lives and careers. For the Penguins that meant 2016 Stanley Cup champions.
There are also players who are celebrating Father's Day themselves for the first time, including new Los Angeles Kings captain Anze Kopitar, who welcomed a daughter in March.
Many teams paid tribute to dad with video compilations of players and their children or players sending messages to their fathers.
NHL teams allow players' parents to come on the road during the regular season and get a first-hand account of what their son is doing during the annual mothers' trip and fathers' trip.
Teams shared some of those special father-son moments from this year's fathers' trip in honor Sunday.
The Montreal Canadiens are having a little fun with Father's Day, asking fans to match dads and their sons.
