Summer of Cup Love: Mt. Benedict, B.C.

cup-mitchell-mtbenedict.jpgWillie Mitchell, the oldest of the Kings players at 35, spent part of his day with the Stanley Cup on a mountain peak in British Columbia. Photo posted on Twitter by the Hockey Hall of Fame's Keeper of the Cup, who calls it Mt. Benedict. Another source gives the mountain a different name.

Mitchell also shared the Cup with about 6,000 people in the small logging town of Port McNeill, and took part in a First Nation peace dance with the 'Namgis people on the north coast of Vancouver Island. Mitchell also took the Cup out on a lake: video at the Kings website.
