Touring with the Stanley Cup: Captain Dustin Brown

Los Angeles Kings team captain Dustin Brown stood in the driveway of his home in Ithaca, N.Y., with his son Jake clutching a small replica of the Stanley Cup – waiting.

What they were waiting for was the well-traveled symbol of hockey’s Holy Grail – Lord Stanley’s Cup. As is tradition, each member of the the team that wins the NHL Championship gets a day with the Stanley Cup.

Once it arrived, the show began. There were stops at the sign welcoming visitor’s to Ithaca, the picturesque Ithaca Falls, the hockey rink where Brown honed his skills and Ithaca High School, where residents gathered in the rain for their chance to congratulate Brown and touch the Stanley Cup.

Dustin Brown grew up playing hockey at Ithaca High School and was drafted by the Guelph Storm in the Ontario Hockey League prior to being drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. He met his wife, Nicole, also from Ithaca, at a state hockey tournament and they now have three young children.

As the day wound down, Brown lifted the Stanley Cup for friends to take a drink of beer at Glenwood Pines Restaurant and then they were off to the Ithaca Ale House.
