Following the Colorado Avalanche Stanley Cup tour and celebrations.

The Stanley Cup was out for its second tour over the weekend as the Colorado Avalanche each get their day to celebrate with friends, family, and their local communities with this batch hitting the Midwest. But before its departure, the Cup received a little facelift, which actually was not dent related.

J.T. Compher was first up as he brought the Cup to Northbrook, Illinois where he grew up and first learned to play hockey. After some time with the Cup at his parents’ house there was a ceremony at a local rink and then a party with friends and family later that evening.

Jack Johnson was next in line to receive the Cup the following day where he makes his residence in Dublin, Ohio. He fulfilled a promise he made to his three kids that if he ever won the Cup they would eat ice cream out of it. The rest of Johnson’s celebration was held locally with the community where he walked down the streets with the Cup.

Now there’s been a little time to plan and announce a few upcoming Stanley Cup celebrations. Go check it out if you are in the area!
