Before departing for a trip across the Atlantic Ocean the Stanley Cup made one final stop stateside at the offseason home of Jared Bednar in Charleston, South Carolina. There he took the Cup to the rink of the ECHL’s South Carolina Stingrays where he spent 15 seasons as a player and coach. Then the Cup got out on the water for a boat ride and retired for the evening at a private party.

Pavel Francouz was the first in Europe to have a day with the Cup. He started off with a parade in his hometown of Pilsen in the Czech Republic with a gathering in the square of a brewery and then drank beer out of the Cup.
