After spending the weekend in Scottsdale, Arizona and Monday in Dallas, Texas, the Stanley Cup returned to the east coast of the US for the first time since July 18, for a day with Blaine Forsythe, in Plymouth, Massachusetts. (Reminder, you can find the latest schedule of dates for Capitals players “day with the Stanley Cup” right here. You can find links to each and every “day with the Stanley Cup” that has already occurred right here.)
Forsythe first joined the Capitals organization as a video coach prior to the start of the 2006–07 season. In 2013, Forsythe was promoted to an assistant coach under Adam Oates, and currently serves the same capacity under Todd Reirden. He will be responsible for the Capitals power play and the team’s centers.
Forsythe’s wife Ivy, a former Plymouth native, was instrumental in bringing the Cup to town, saying they wanted to spend their one day with it in their summer home.

Blaine brought the Cup to Main Street Sports from 3-5 p.m. The event included an auction with all proceeds to benefit “To The Moon and Back” (TTMAB) & the Plymouth Youth Foundation.
To The Moon And Back provides a twice monthly support group for caregivers (foster and adoptive parents, relative and non-relative caregivers) of children born with substance exposure. The group provides a place for caregivers to connect with their peers. They regularly host speakers with experience working with children with substance exposure so caregivers can remain in the know about the latest in research and best practices for this population.
Some of the featured items that were auctioned off included: hockey sticks signed by Alexander Ovechkin & John Carlson, a puck signed by TJ Oshie, a bat autographed by members of the Washington Nationals and tickets to a Bruins-Caps game this year.
Blaine took time to pose for a few pictures at the event. Below, Forsythe w/family friends Carter & Peyton Dunn from D.C
The Stanley Cup will stay in Massachusetts for the night and spend tomorrow (Thursday) with Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik in Cohasset, Massachusetts. Brooks and Stanley will be at Seabird Coffee from 11 a.m. to noon
