One week after the Stanley Cup has been claimed by the Chicago Blackhawks, the celebration continues or, for some communities around the world, is set to begin.
Not only does every player, coach and team personnel get a Stanley Cup ring, but most get a day with the Stanley Cup.
If you think you know how to party can you imagine hockey players partying with the cup. The Stanley Cup has reportedly received many dints over the years as well as being urinated in and even the centrepiece for the occasional baptism.
It has been to clubs, Hollywood parties, mountain tops and in nearly as many parades as Santa Claus.
Some players go back to their grassroots with the Stanley Cup while others take it to their summer houses or some, including Joe Nieuwendyk, have taken the cup to their university.
The cup has been on both the east and west coasts of Canada and the United States as well as in Sweden, Russia, Slovakia, Ukraine and a handful of other international countries.
Last year, over 50 members of the Pittsburgh Penguins had their names engraved in the Stanley Cup once the day with the cup celebrations concluded.
This time around, one of those fortunate players to have their name engraved has a connection to the Battlefords.
Jordan Hendry was in and out of the Chicago Blackhawks's lineup as a defenceman and did spend a short time playing for the Battlefords North Stars when he was 17.
From the Battlefords Hendry moved on to play four seasons at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks.
Once he finished his senior year, Hendry immediately jumped to the American Hockey League and played with the Norfolk Admirals.
A season with the Admirals was followed up with one in Rockford with the Icehogs, where he was called up to play his first NHL game with the Blackhawks during the 2007-08 season.
Hendry played 43 games this season and 15 during the Blackhawks playoff run, meaning the former North Star could be spending his day with the cup in his hometown of Nokomis.
What makes a Stanley Cup winning team? Obviously the leadership, skill and hard work are key, but the winning recipe this season includes 11 Canadian forwards, five American forwards and two Slovakian forwards on the roster. On defence, the Blackhawks had eight Canadians, two Americans and two Swedes. In net, one from France, two Fins and a Canadian.
Of the 34 players on the Blackhawks roster, 25 skaters and three goalies, who are still on the team, suited up for the Blackhawks.
Anything is possible, it doesn't matter if you were drafted first overall like Patrick Kane, 245th overall like Dustin Byfuglien or undrafted like Hendry and two others on the Championship team, the cup is what everyone who owns a hockey stick and pair of skates dreams of - hoisting the Stanley Cup.
