Summer with Stanley

Bouwmeester's family wears all of his jerseys for day with Cup

Blues defenseman gets first turn to take trophy home after 16 NHL seasons

by @NHLdotcom

Jay Bouwmeester had a few stops during his professional hockey career, and for his long-awaited day with the Stanley Cup, his family represented all of them.

The 35-year-old defenseman played 16 seasons in the NHL before winning his first championship with the St. Louis Blues in 2019, so when his turn to take the trophy came on Thursday in Canmore, Alberta, members of his family put on jerseys from the Florida Panthers, Calgary Flames and Blues, as well as those from Canada and the Medicine Hat Tigers of the Western Hockey League.

Bouwmeester also took the Cup to the Canmore Eagles of the Alberta Junior Hockey League and had a meet and greet at a local golf and curling club. He served as a guest instructor at the Canmore Hockey School in 2018.
