White House Honors Chicago Blackhawks for Stanley Cup Victory

2015 Stanley Cup Champions Chicago Blackhawks visited the White House on Thursday in celebration of their victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning this past June.


President Obama called the Stanley Cup the "best trophy in sports" and said that he was happy that a Chicago team was winning championships. He was given a lifetime parking pass to the United Center, the Blackhawks home rink, and it was joked that he should catch a game during his upcoming free time after his term is over.

The Blackhawks have won three Stanley Cups during Obama's tenure, and the president joked that he was their good luck charm and wanted his own day with the trophy. (Each member of the winning team gets one day with the trophy.) Prior to 2010, the team had last won the Stanley Cup in 1961.

"I’ll admit I was hoping you’d give me a day with it this time around. Before I was president, I just want to point out ... the Blackhawks had gone almost half a century without seeing this thing. Now you’ve got the hat trick. So I think it's pretty clear the kind of luck I've brought to this team."
