Stanley Cup Makes Surprise Trip to Annapolis

LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — The Navy men’s hockey team arrived at the ice rink thinking it was a normal day of practice, but little did they know the Stanley Cup was there waiting for them.

The Stanley Cup was delivered to McMullen Arena in Annapolis, Md. while the Naval Academy men’s hockey team took to the ice for practice Tuesday. Coach Mike Fox and his team seemed very happy with their surprise visitor.

It’s called “Day With The Cup,” presented by Discover card, where they give “fans an up close and personal look at the Stanley Cup and the players it inspires to be champions.”

Recently, two players Tom Krysil and Andrew Mills, were sent to the ACHA All Star game. Krysil finished with two goals and Mills was awarded “best goalie” in one of the shootout rounds.

Navy finished the season at 29-7-2 and #8 in the country for the highest finish in Navy Hockey history, according to Navy hockey’s Facebook page.
