Korn had some help bringing the Cup back to where his coaching career started. John Walton, Capitals radio announcer and a Miami (Ohio) alum, helped him celebrate the day.

Tweet from @WaltonCaps: 7:30 a.m. High Street, Oxford, Ohio. Today is gonna be a great day.

As part of the celebration, the school unveiled a banner featuring a picture of Korn hoisting the Stanley Cup that will hang from the rafters of Goggin Ice Center.

Korn was hired by the New York Islanders as director of goaltending July 26. He'll work again with coach Barry Trotz, who was hired as coach of the Islanders on June 21.
