Stanley Still Motivates

BostonBruins.com — As he prepared for this upcoming season, Tyler Seguin talked about the memories that motivate his offseason workouts.

Two of those memories revolve around summertime trips to the park and visits with Lord Stanley.

Last year, Seguin brought the Stanley Cup home to Brampton's Chinguacousy Park, but a decade earlier, when Tyler wore the colors of Whitby, Ontario, the impressionable young player was lucky enough to be on hand when the Colorado Avalanche's Adam Foote brought the jug to that city's Iroquois Park.

"I just got off the floor playing lacrosse for the Whitby Warriors," said Seguin. "I got to see the Cup for the first time.

"I remember I apparently I didn’t touch it but I do have a picture of it somewhere at home so hopefully I can find that."

Chances are good that Seguin has plenty of pictures of last year’s summertime activities with Stanley—and if he doesn't have one handy, his friends from Brampton certainly do.

"I remember I was at a local place watching Game 7 when he won against Vancouver," said good friend Matt Azeveo, who joined Tyler for dinner when we interviewed Seguin in Toronto last month. "I mean you kind of feel so proud that it almost brings you to tears a little bit.

"You’re seeing your good friend up on the TV winning the Cup and being a symbol in Brampton.

"A lot of people look up to him in Brampton," added Matt. "It was pretty wild when he brought it home for sure."

And bringing Lord Stanley's famous bowl back to Brampton remains a consistent motivating factor for Seguin.

"Being able to bring it to Chinguacousy park in Brampton and letting all the fans see it and take a picture with me," was how Tyler described his recollection of the day. "There were a couple thousand more people than we expected showing up, so it was a bit longer of a time there than expected.

"But I was that kid not even a decade ago going up trying to take a picture, so it’s always pretty cool and remarkable to be the guy holding the Cup this time around and hopefully I can do it again."
