Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Trevor Daley spent Saturday with the Stanley Cup in his hometown of Toronto.
Daley endured a tumultuous season on and off the ice. His mom, Trudy, died of cancer shortly after the Penguins defeated the San Jose Sharks in six games in the Cup Final. The 32-year-old was traded twice -- from the Dallas Stars to the Chicago Blackhawks on July 10 and from Chicago to Pittsburgh on Dec. 14 -- and broke his leg in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, costing him the final nine games of the Penguins' run to the Cup.
But Daley has celebrated the past two days in Ontario. After spending Friday evening at St. Joseph Island, a small Canadian landmass east of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Daley brought the Cup to Regent Park in Toronto, where he posed for pictures and signed autographs on Saturday.
Daley also stopped at the Toronto Fire Station 325, giving that house's firefighters the rare opportunity to see the Cup up close.
Daley closed his day with a party at the Spice Route Asian Bar & Bistro on King Street West. Fans there could pose with the Cup or enjoy a piece of a Stanley Cup cake made to celebrate the day.
