Cup crazy in New Westminster

It's one of the enduring traditions of the Stanley Cup.

During summer months, players and managers of the winning team each get a day to spend with the cup.

It's travelled the world, been hauled to the top of mountains, toured countless bars, held babies and all manner of beverages. It's been on golf courses and fishing boats.

Thursday, LA Kings goalie coach brought the cup to New Westminster. He spent part of the day touring it around his hometown, visiting businesses that are important to his daily routine.

The hallowed trophy was also the centrepiece attraction at a public event at the Glenbrook fire hall in the afternoon, where hundreds of fans lined up for a chance to see, touch and be photographed with the cup. All proceeds from that event went to the New West firefighter's charitable foundation.
