The Stanley Cup officially has some new names on it.

The 2018-19 St. Louis Blues recently had their names inscribed on the trophy, and the finished product was unveiled Monday.

Each Blues player and staff member spent a day with the Cup over the summer, but Oskar Sundqvist is the only Blues player with his name on the Cup twice, meaning most of the St. Louis players were still left awe-inspired upon seeing their names on the trophy.

"Goosebumps," Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo told the team website upon seeing his name on the Cup. "It was cool to have around, but when you have an opportunity to see your name on it, it's pretty [darn] special."

"That's incredible," center and Conn Smythe Trophy winner Ryan O'Reilly said. "It's amazing. Part of history. You never think you'll actually be on there, but look at that. That's incredible. That's so cool."

"I'm speechless," forward Brayden Schenn said. "It's what you work your whole life being a hockey player, and to see your name on the Stanley Cup with a lot of the game's greats, it gives you goosebumps looking at that."

Each name of the Blues coaches, staff and players was added to the trophy by Montreal-based engraver Louise St. Jacques after they defeated the Boston Bruins in seven games in the Stanley Cup Final to capture their first championship.
