Penguins forward Phil Kessel shared the photo of his name on the Cup on Instagram on Wednesday with the caption "53 years on this cup."

The Cup engraving reveal caps a whirlwind month of celebrating their championship, which they clinched in six games against the San Jose Sharks in the Stanley Cup Final.

They visited President Barack Obama on Oct. 6, received their championship rings on Oct. 10, then watched their championship banner get raised before their game against the Washington Capitals on Oct. 12.
