The Stanley Cup has had a mixed week. First, the legendary trophy was tainted during a game against the Colorado Avalanches in Tampa. Second, the Cup was delivered to the wrong address on its way to Avs winger Gabriel Landeskogs' house.
The Stanley Cup was supposed to be given to the Swedish forward so he could receive his medal. It's one of the finest experiences a professional hockey player could ever have. Instead, the Cup was sent to the home of Kit Karbler in Denver's Hilltop neighborhood.
Karbler was surprised by the unexpected delivery. On the social media app NextDoor, he shared a photo of the Stanley Cup. Kit understood it was a mistake, but was eager to see it up close.
It looks like a contractor or something. I didnt know. And a guy walks in. He has long, broad gray hair, parted, and hes very pleasant. And he comes right in and they're looking, the truck is backed up, and they're looking to win the trophy.
Philip Pritchard, who is the Hall of Fame's Keeper of the Cup, explained the issue. Landeskog has a similar address to the incorrect destination.
The Stanley Cup has already had a tumultuous summer. Who knows what might happen next? In the end, the flaw was rectified, and Gabriel Landeskog got to experience the most famous trophy in sports.
