Celebratory, low key weekend for Stanley

Since the Los Angeles Kings drank champagne out of the Stanley Cup on Friday night, sports’ most famous trophy has enjoyed a celebratory but low-profile in parties and gatherings involving members of the team and the team’s staff, and their families. A schedule is gradually forming for the short and medium-term, and eventually this week the team’s business operations and public relations staffs will begin mapping out an entire summer’s worth of Cup travels and presentations from El Segundo to Chelyabinsk.

In the 24 hours after winning the Cup, both Jeff Carter and Darryl Sutter hosted parties for friends, family and staff.

Philip Pritchard, the Hockey Hall of Fame’s “Keeper of the Cup,” is an obvious follow this summer. Today, Justin Williams, Robyn Regehr and Willie Mitchell hosted friends and family with the Cup. Again, from Pritchard:

 

The parade and fan rally will take up much of Monday, with Alec Martinez and Justin Williams joining Jimmy Kimmel Live later in the afternoon. More details on the parade and rally.

There are a handful of events and appearances in the process of being scheduled over the coming days that have not yet been made public but should involve the South Bay cities that are home to so many Kings players, staff, and their families.
