The Stanley Cup never rests, and this Sunday was proof of that. After spending a busy week with Braden Holtby, Brett Leonhardt, Brock Miles and Scott Murray, it was Tom Wilson’s turn for his day with the highly coveted chalice on Sunday. (Reminder, you can find the latest schedule of dates for Capitals players “day with the Stanley Cup” right here.) 

Tom Wilson, his family and friends spent much of the day in the north Toronto area. Wilson started his day with the breakfast of champions, a “Cup” O’ Lucky Charms.

Following his champion’s breakfast, Tom posed for a photo with his family outside of their North Toronto home. His brothers got the memo on wearing Capitals gear, so thumbs,up to the bros.

When you need to stay in tip-top shape and the season is right around the corner, you can never miss a day in the gym. Never! In this case, Willy utilized the gym at St. Michael’s College School, a private, all-boys Roman Catholic day school in Toronto, for his daily workout. This time it included Stanley presses.

 

North Toronto Memorial Arena
Wilson held a public event at the North Toronto Memorial Arena in greater Toronto, starting at 11:30 a.m Sunday morning and lasting until about 2:00 p.m. Wilson played his youth hockey for North Toronto, and was a tyke champion with the Bedford Bison. Tom made his grand entrance to the arena with “Can’t hold us back” by Macklemore. (Video: @capitals)

 

Wilson first met the children from SickKids and posed for a few photos with the kids.

Wilson then fielded a few questions from the kids in attendance. He was asked by one of the kids, “Why do you like fighting so much?” which caught him him a little off guard. Wilson laughed. “I never got into one in all my time playing for North Toronto.” Good politically correct answer.

The Mayor of Toronto, John Tory arrived at North Toronto Arena just after noon local time, to greet Wilson and say a few words at the event. Tory also played his youth hockey in North Toronto. The mayor thanked Tom for bringing the Stanley Cup back to his hometown and predicted it will make frequent visits to the city in the near future with the Leafs. Below, the Mayor (left) chats with Tom Wilson’s grandfather.

Tom Wilson, family and friends next headed for Ontario Place in downtown Toronto for a private gathering at Tom’s boat, The “Four Wins”. Tom’s entourage took a party bus between locations, which included matching “We Did It” shirts for the entire party.
