Stan's Our Man - Stanley Cup Facts

Stanley Cup Final 2009

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.
