Newly-crowned Stanley Cup champion Daniel Carcillo got to show off the coveted cup last Friday night when he attended a Rush concert in Chicago.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Carcillo, who plays for the Chicago Blackhawks, brought the Stanley Cup onstage during a break at Rush’s concert in Tinley Park. The Tribune captured video of the sports star holding the cup over his head as the crowd cheered.
Before the concert, Carcillo tweeted, “I’m not going to lie, thoroughly enthused about catching #Rush at Tinley Park tomorrow evening. I may bring along a silver friend #boom.”
The day after the concert, Rush responded to the hockey player on their official Twitter page, tweeting, “Thanks for bringing your silver friend tonight.”
Carcillo, who hosts his own classic rock-themed radio show in Chicago, is from King City, Ontario, which is located near Rush’s native city of Toronto.
The Blackhawks beat the Boston Bruins in a grueling six-game series, with the final game going into triple overtime on June 24 before ending with a final score of 4 to 3.
Rush will continue their “Clockwork Angels” tour through August across North America. To keep up with the latest from Rush, check out the band’s official website or follow them on Twitter @RushTheBand.
