After spending a busy week with Braden Holtby, Brett Leonhardt, Brock Miles, Scott Murray, and Tom Wilson, the Stanley Cup wrapped-up this particular Canadian leg of the tour by spending the day with Devante Smith-Pelly in the greater Toronto area. The Cup returns to Europe tomorrow. (Reminder, you can find the latest schedule of dates for Capitals players “day with the Stanley Cup” right here.)

One of the first stops for Devante and the Cup was Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children.

For the first time (that we can recall) a little rain fell on the faithful waiting in line to visit with Devante and the Cup. But there was no way a little rain was going to deter Caps fans.

In an interview with Mike Zeisberger, NHLer Chris Stewart was asked about the career of his long time friend Devante Smith-Pelly, who went from journeyman to Stanley Cup hero. “From tragedy to triumph,” Stewart said. DSP used to ride his bike a couple of blocks in this Scarborough neighbourhood to the Stewart’s house so they could drive him to training.
