After spending Saturday with Washington Capitals’ owner Ted Leonsis in suburban Maryland, the Stanley Cup returned to north of the border for a day with former Capitals forward Alex Chiasson in Quebec City, Quebec. Chiasson is the last player from the Champioship roster to have his day with the Stanley Cup. (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.) 

Chiasson, 27, told leSoleil, “Wherever we go, people talk to me about it. They want to know what’s the feeling . I am very happy to have been able to accomplish this in my career. Of course my summer is a little more hectic, I try to enjoy it. It’s a kind of wave on which we surf and try to stay on it as long as possible, “said the player of St. Augustine to the Sun.

Last spring, Chiasson found himself in the final against his former Typhoon teammate SSF (Midget Hope), Jonathan Marchessault.

From 3pm to 5pm, Alex Chiasson invited local fans to celebrate with him at the Saint-François Seminary, where he played for the Blizzard. Alex donned a Blizzards sweater as he addressed the crowd.

Alex’s friend Jonathan Marchessault would also make a surprise appearance. For Marchessault, there was no question of missing the party.”I’m happy to be here for my friend Alex. I’m really proud of him”, he said. “I wanted to come with my boy to show him that this is the toughest trophy to win and that Alex has won.”

“John is not really here as a hockey player, but as a friend of mine. Like all the people who are here. That’s what touches me the most,” Alex told TVA Sports.
