Blackhawks' Hossa joins Chara, Gaborik for photo with Stanley Cup
Talk about your winner's circle.
Chicago Blackhawks veteran forward Marian Hossa was not alone in celebrating his day with the Stanley Cup in Trencin, Slovakia. In addition to signing autographs and posing for photos with interested fans, Hossa shared a moment with fellow countrymen Marian Gaborik of the Los Angeles Kings and captain Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins.
The 36-year-old Hossa has made a habit of returning home with the cherished chalice, having done so after the Blackhawks defeated the Philadelphia Flyers in 2010 and the Boston Bruins in 2013 before his team bested the Tampa Bay Lightning in June.
Trencin has also seen the Stanley Cup pay a visit in both 2011 and 2014, as Chara brought it home four years ago before Gaborik did the same last year.
Give Gaborik and Chara credit for flashing smiles despite seeing their respective teams miss the playoffs last season.
