The Chronicles of Stanley is a weekly series this summer that tracks the Chicago Blackhawks as they each get their special alone time with the Stanley Cup.
There have been plenty of NHL players have celebrated along with siblings also in the league who may not been as fortunate on the ice. Those poor siblings have to celebrate their brother’s accomplishment all while hiding their envy and staying as far away as possible from the Stanley Cup.
Two Staal brothers, Eric and Jordan, have won Cups. Did Marc and Jared just stay on the other side of the house while everyone else partied? For James van Riemsdyk, he was part of brother Trevor’s day with the Cup this past week, but kept his distance from the trophy.
As many players do, TVR shared his day with the local community and local youth hockey teams:

Brandon Saad used his day to share it with military members at the 911th Airlift Wing in Moon, Pennsylvania.
