    Keeping up with the Stanley Cup

    Barry Chin/Globe Staff

    Since Chicago won its second title in four years in June, members of the organization spent their summer spending time with the Stanley Cup. A look at some of the trophy’s destinations:

    June 26: New York City with Patrick Kane (above)

    Two days after winning the Cup, the Conn Smythe winner brought both trophies to “The Late Show with David Letterman.” The Cup also had a backstage meeting with the Backstreet Boys.

    July 31: St. Louis with Brandon Bollig

    The 26-year-old winger from St. Charles, Mo., took the Cup to two of the most iconic landmarks in the Midwest — the Gateway Arch and Busch Stadium.

    Aug. 9: Trencin, Slovakia, with Marian Hossa


    Only an international diplomat such as the Cup would make three trips to Trencin in four years, twice with Hossa and once with Bruins captain Zdeno Chara.

    Mid-August: Sweden with Johnny Oduya, Marcus Kruger, Viktor Stalberg, and Niklas Hjalmarsson

    Four players got to spend their day with the Cup at various posts, though Hjalmarsson had to wait until he returned from his honeymoon.

    Aug. 19: Lake Michigan with Joel Quenneville

    The Blackhawks coach turned his day with the Cup into a reunion with some former Hartford Whalers teammates, including two-time Cup winner Ron Francis.

    Sept. 18: Millennium Park in Chicago with fans

    With the Blackhawks busy with preseason games, their fan base lined up by the hundreds to have their picture taken with the most iconic trophy in sports.
