Jeff Zatkoff changed teams this offseason, but the former Pittsburgh Penguins goalie got to celebrate his day with the Stanley Cup on Wednesday.

Zatkoff started two Stanley Cup Playoff games and won one in the Penguins' run to the Stanley Cup this spring, and he enjoyed his day with the trophy in the Raleigh-Durham region of North Carolina. The goalie, who signed a two-year contract with the Los Angeles Kings on July 1, met up with former Miami University teammates Brian Kaufman and Alec Martinez, the latter who will be Zatkoff's teammate with Los Angeles and was a hero for the Kings' most recent championship against the New York Rangers in 2014.

Zatkoff then brought the Cup to Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, N.C., where his father is a member. Members of the club, and his cousin Ronnie, got to have their pictures taken with the Stanley Cup throughout the day.
