Stanley Cup visits UCLA trophy room

by NHL.com Staff / NHL.com

The Stanley Cup can stand out even in a room of more than 100 trophies.

The Cup won by the Los Angeles Kings visited UCLA on Friday during executive Dan Beckerman's day with it. Beckerman, the president and CEO of owners AEG, accompanied it to the UCLA Hall of Fame, where the Bruins' winnings are displayed.

"This room that we are standing in right now has 111 championship trophies that UCLA has, and one that the Kings won this last year," UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero told Sportsmedia101.com. "This is the right place for this trophy to be displayed."

Students and administrators were allowed to come see the Cup.

"It's certainly evident that all of the Kings fans are alive and well here at UCLA," Guerrero said. "The line has gone out the door and people continue to come in their Kings regalia and all their clothes. It's a thrill for us to have the opportunity to share the Stanley Cup, with our folks here at UCLA."

Beckerman later took the Stanley Cup to the Los Angeles Police Department West Los Angeles Division, and Los Angeles Fire Department Station 59.

"It just brings people within our own organization even closer together because they have that bond now," fire captain Jamie E. Moore told the website. "They’ve experienced the Cup and support the Kings together, and we get to do it in our own backyard."
