After spending the weekend in South Carolina with Jason Fitzsimmons and the South Carolina Stingrays, the Stanley Cup returned to Minnesota on Monday for a day with Capitals scout A.J. Toews, in Delano, Minnesota. Delano is a suburb community about 20 minutes west of Minneapolis. (Reminder, you can find links to each and every “day with the Stanley Cup” that have already occurred right here.)
Toews, who is in his 10th season as an amateur scout with the Capitals, started his day with a few stops in Delano, including a local coffee shop and a few of the local schools.

In an interview with Delano Herald Jornal, Toews was asked about getting a Stanley Cup ring. Toews said he received his ring with the other team scouts at a banquet in Washington, DC Oct. 2, one day after the players and coaches received theirs, and one day before he watched the Capitals raise their championship banner to the rafters at Capital One Arena and open the 2018-19 season with a 7-0 win over Boston.
We are a pretty loud group with a lot of type-A guys who like to talk a lot. It was deftly silent in the room,” Toews said. “It was the same feeling I had when I looked at the Cup — ‘Gosh, I am part of a team that won this thing.’ I looked at it to make sure my name was on the side of this thing.”
