Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford looked more like a player while enjoying his day with the Stanley Cup.

A priceless picture of the GM posing with three Cups, holding two replicas while standing behind the real deal, hit social media Sunday.

The best part of the picture may be the black Penguins sweater Rutherford is wearing.

Rutherford, of course, was a veteran of 13 NHL seasons as a goaltender for the Penguins, Detroit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings and Toronto Maple Leafs.

Before winning back-to-back Cup titles with the Penguins the past two seasons, Rutherford was the architect of the 2006 Stanley Cup champion Carolina Hurricanes.
