    Barkov first Stanley Cup-winning captain from Finland

    A Finnish flag waved prominently in the stands as the Florida Panthers celebrated with the Stanley Cup. Aleksander Barkov held his 2-year-old child in his arms minutes after getting the trophy from Commissioner Gary Bettman. The first championship in franchise history was made possible by a handful of Finns, none more effective than Barkov, who became the first captain from his country to be presented and then hoist the Cup. "I was young when I came here, so I never thought I could celebrate someday with my kid," Barkov said.
