Only a privileged few have had the opportunity to raise the Stanley Cup throughout their NHL career, but it’s an exclusive group of players who have had their name engraved on Lord Stanley in back-to-back seasons. GTHL grad Trevor Daley became part of that exclusive group when the Pittsburgh Penguins notched their second consecutive Stanley Cup this past season.
Daley, who played his later years in the GTHL with the Don Mills Flyers, recently celebrated his day with the Cup in his hometown with friends and family. The Regent Park native was spotted at a local hockey school and also visited his mother’s grave site. Trudy Daley, Trevor’s mother, passed away last year shortly after Trevor won his first Stanley Cup with the Penguins.
After two winning seasons with the Penguins, Daley will be joining the Detroit Red Wings next season as he starts his first year of a three-year contract.
Daley made his NHL debut in 2005 with the Dallas Stars. He has since played almost 900 NHL career games.
