Brayden Schenn took the Stanley Cup for a high ride during his day with the most famous trophy in sports.

The St. Louis Blues forward went up on the ladder of a Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, fire truck with his firefighter father, Jeff, on Friday.

"You always think if I win the Cup, you put the thoughts in your head of what I would do with it," Brayden told the Blues website. "My dad is a firefighter, so this was important to me. I'm trying to do my best sharing it with a lot of people today."

"It was his idea to bring it to the fire hall and be part of it with the guys," Jeff said. "It's a very proud moment for me. We're always following (his hockey career), so it was sort of cool that he thought it would be neat to bring it to my work."

Schenn, who was born in Saskatoon, also visited Royal University Hospital with the Cup.

The 27-year-old, who had 12 points (five goals, seven assists) in 26 Stanley Cup Playoff games to help the Blues to the first NHL championship in their 51-season history, began the day at home, donning a personalized Saskatchewan Rough Riders jersey while hoisting the trophy.
