Stan's Our Man - Stanley Cup Facts

Another hard-hitting, slap shot-shooting season of NHL playoff action is underway. Kidzworld takes a look at one of the NHL's greatest legends.

He's been around the NHL longer than anyone else. He's traveled the world. He's been to some of the greatest parties - with rock stars, movie stars and even the President. He's been kissed more times than Brett Hull's scored. But this guy's also had some real rough rides. A jokester on the Howard Stern show once pooped on him, he's been thrown into a canal, kidnapped and left for dead in the bottom of a swimming pool.

So who is this superstar? None other than our buddy Stan - as in first name Stanley, last name Cup. Here's a closer look at the Stanley Cup.

Talk about your experiences on your journey to making it to the NBA if you share this dream, and how it is coming along from the beginning to now. I can offer some advice to help along the way whether it be effective workouts or how to excel in your school's basketball team.

I do dabbing and like to toast bread. 4 time MVP all star dabber, named to the USA dabbing national team. I also toast some mean bread and have 100 Michelin Stars. I also play cricket on a horse, water polo on jellyfish, and do underwater hockey. Nothing too big
