After spending a day with Andre Burakovsky in Malmo, Sweden, on Thursday, the Stanley Cup continued it’s Scandanavian tour with a stop in Gavle, Sweden, for a day with Capitals defenseman Christian Djoos. (Reminder, you can find the latest schedule of dates for Capitals players “day with the Stanley Cup” right here.) 

First stop for Christian and the Cup was visit with his old Swedish Hockey League team, Brynas IF, at Galverinken Arena in Gavle. There he was joined by teammate Nicklas Backstrom. Backstrom is also an alum of Brynas. The two participated in the annual Bryna Black-White exhibition game the previous day (here.)

Djoos and Backstrom entered the arena together, carrying the coveted chalice through a tunnel of comprised of current Brynas players. It is estimated that around 1,500 people attended the ceremony to pay tribute to the city’s two champions.

Both Djoos and Backstrom spoke for a few minutes before taking photos with fans. “I hope to come home one day and take that SM gold,” said Bäckström, referring to his earlier playing days with Brynas, and hinting at a possible return to the club in the future.  “I have two years left with Washington, then you do not know what’s going on. But it would be incredibly fun to get home and play for this lovely audience sometime.”

Backstrom won both a World Championship and the Stanley Cup in the past year, but never won a championship during his time with Brynas. Backstrom’s Day with the Stanley Cup is Sunday in Valbo.

Djoos was asked about his relative quick rise to the top in the NHL. “Very funny. The core of the team has been fighting for this a long time without getting all the way. Now we got together in a good way and a good end, “said Djoos, who officially had his day with the Gavlerinken cup.

The Lines to get a photo with the Gavle duo we’re once again impressive.
