The Stanley Cup Arrives in Hermosa Beach with NHL Champions LA Kings Star Center Jarret Stoll

Skooter reporting 06/26/12

In Los Angeles, where fame is often short-lived, the city’s most favorite nowadays is no movie celebrity, not a sports hero, not even an international fashion icon or a well-known political dignitary but it is a piece of silver hardware about three feet tall and named after a former Canadian governor general.

Thousands of people swarmed on Pier Plaza in Hermosa Beach Monday to mark L.A.’s new superstar – the Stanley Cup. The Monday’s rally near the base of the city’s pier came two weeks after the Los Angeles Kings beat the New Jersey Devils in six games to grab the NHL championship, the first in the team’s 45-year history. The South Bay has become the frame of the Kings' popularity, and most of the team's players and staff members call the beach cities home.

One young supporter by the name of Dan Nguyen, 28, who took a day leave from work and traveled from San Bernardino to Hermosa Beach for the chance to see the oldest and most iconic trophy in professional sports said that he is a hockey fan and always want to see the Stanley Cup in person. He added that it’s a blessing to see their team win the Stanley Cup after so many years of heartbreak.
