Kings take the Stanley Cup to Las Vegas

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Hopefully that doesn’t apply to the Stanley Cup.

Members of the Kings celebrated their NHL championship at the TAO nightclub in the Venetian Las Vegas Resort and Casino on Thursday night. And it was quite the show.

After being introduced by a little person dressed as a king on his throne, the Kings players each took turns drinking champagne out of the Stanley Cup as music blared and partygoers cheered.

Kings in attendance were Trevor Lewis, Jeff Carter, Jarrett Stoll, Brad Richardson, Drew Doughty, Mike Richards, Alec Martinez and Jordan Nolan.

As the fun continued at the TAO, fans took pictures as each player took the 35-pound trophy and hoisted it over his head when the DJ called out his name.


As they left the club, the players grabbed toy crowns off a cart and wore them out of the club.

Only in Vegas. Hopefully none of the Kings took the Cup to the roulette table and put it on red.
