Kings captain Dustin Brown receives the Stanley Cup

By hockey tradition, the captain is the first to accept the Stanley Cup. Dustin Brown takes the Cup from National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman. After skating with the Cup, Brown handed it to Willie Mitchell, the team's veteran defenseman and the survivor of a serious concussion. In a separate video, Mitchell talks about winning the Cup after 12 years in the league and taking the trophy home to British Columbia. His name trended on Twitter in Canada after the game.
