Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Matt Murray took the Stanley Cup to his hometown of Thunder Bay, Ontario on Tuesday.
"The biggest thing for me is just sharing it with the people of the city," Murray told CBC on Monday. "I know that the Cup is a pretty big thing, especially in a town like this, so I'm excited to see peoples' reactions when they get to see it."
After a few fans greeted Murray at Thunder Bay International Airport, he went to visit the Westfort Rangers, a youth hockey team.
The crowd at the airport may have been tame, but there were plenty of people waiting for Murray at Intercity Shopping Centre.
Murray's turn with the Cup came a day after the Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame in Thunder Bay raised a Penguins flag in his honor.
"It's one of those stories that we're going to be telling years from now, that Cinderella story of a kid that, so young, stepped up to the plate and brought home the Stanley Cup," executive director Diane Imrie said.
Murray also went to the Thunder Bay landmark Sleeping Giant rock formation, which he features on his goalie mask.
