Where will the Cup end up?

After tomorrow’s NHL Awards in Las Vegas and the draft this weekend in Pittsburgh, Kings players and staff can start putting the Stanley Cup on tour. Every player and coach and many staff members get to spend a day with the Cup. Most take it to their respective hometowns to spend time with family and friends. Some have public events. This summer, based on hometowns, the Cup could end up in four countries, including six Canadian provinces and five U.S. states. If you know the day, it should be fairly easy to find the Cup in Ayr, Ontario, or Meadowlake, Saskatchewan, each with a population under 5,000. Here are the hometowns of all the players…

CANADA
Jonathan Bernier (Laval, Quebec)
Jeff Carter and Drew Doughty (London, Ontario)
Kyle Clifford (Ayr, Ontario)
Colin Fraser (Surrey, B.C., but will take the cup to Alberta)
Simon Gagne (Ste. Foy, Quebec)
Dwight King (Meadowlake, Saskatchewan)
Willie Mitchell (Port McNeill, B.C.)
Jordan Nolan (St. Catharines, Ontario)
Dustin Penner (Winkler, Manitoba)
Mike Richards (Kenora, Ontario)
Brad Richardson (Belleville, Ontario)
Jarret Stoll (Melville, Saskatchewan)
Kevin Westgarth (Amherstburg, Ontario)

UNITED STATES
