This summer, the Stanley Cup has been on quite an adventure. It's been a big sippy cup for chocolate milk, traveled in a boat across the waters of Slovenia's Lake Bled and visited Russia, to name a few. But on Tuesday, NHL's storied trophy made an excursion into Orange County. Los Angeles Kings forward Dustin Penner brought the Stanley Cup to the Newport Beach Police Department at the request of K-9 Officer Mike Fletcher, a lifelong Kings fan, according to police. Penner, who has an off-season home in Newport, met with members of the department and their families and posed with the coveted cup. Since the Kings won in June, the trophy has also traveled throughout Southern California, Canada and the northeastern United States.

It was after midnight at Muldoon's Irish Pub, but the crowd had no intention of hitting the road. As Friday night turned to Saturday morning, customers packed the Newport Beach restaurant and bar in the hopes of seeing one man — and one tall, glistening silver trophy. The anticipation ended when Anaheim Ducks defenseman Chris Pronger arrived with the Stanley Cup, having gained possession of his team's trophy for 24 hours. Muldoon's staff members placed the 3-foot cup on top of one of the tables and roped it off, while Ducks fans peered in for a look at the oldest championship prize in professional sports.

You would have thought royalty was inside, judging by the line stretching out of the building. In fact there was — at least for hockey fans — as Lord Stanley’s Cup paid a visit to the Newport Sports Museum Friday for a couple of hours. The trophy has been around for 115 years, originally called the Challenger Cup and introduced in 1893, it was changed to the Stanley Cup in the early 20th century. The Ducks’ players’ names will be engraved on the cup next week in Ottawa.

The storied trophy traveled around the world and back with champions the Anaheim Ducks last summer, but made one of it s last appearances in Southern California this year in Costa Mesa as clinic volunteers, donors and staff gathered to take pictures. Pedestrians and people from the car wash across the street stopped by to catch a glimpse of the trophy, which was on display for two hours.

CORONA DEL MAR — The words crackled through the phone on speaker mode — “You’re a great man, Augie. And, you’re special.” — reaffirming what most people in the room had known, even a pro hockey player meeting the man for the first time. “[Augie Nieto] just seems to be the type of person who uplifts people,” said Detroit Red Wings goalie Chris Osgood, who brought the Stanley Cup to Nieto’s home in Corona del Mar Wednesday morning.

NEWPORT BEACH — Mark Smith, the center for the San Jose Sharks, stood on the stage in a dark corner of the Blue Beet CafĂ©, strumming an acoustic guitar and belting out lyrics in a demented, nasal whine. "I'm drowning in my own self-loathing," he sneered over a pulsating beat provided by his two-man band. "But it feels so good/Just like it should." In his black T-shirt and jeans, the lead singer of the Vinyl Trees was barely recognizable as a hockey player. Two of his friends — Dustin Penner of the Anaheim Ducks and Joffrey Lupul of the Philadelphia Flyers — blended with the crowd in plain clothes.

At about 9 p.m. the public can see a 10-minute fireworks display that will be launched from an ocean barge, Newport Beach City Manager Homer Bludau said. The Ducks won the NHL championship, 6-2, Wednesday night against the Ottawa Senators. The official fan celebration will take place at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the Honda Center.

Southern California caught NHL fever earlier this year. It was the first time that I've seen car flags, viewing parties, television news focus and large-scale excitement for hockey. Had the Stanley Cup drive been a movie, it would have faded to black and been followed by a flowering of interest in hockey. Instead, the players are locked out and the amount of publicity and interest around the NHL has been allowed to wane. The National Hockey League has a unique penchant for self-destructiveness in the way it conducts negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement.

This summer, with the Anaheim Ducks atop the world of hockey, the Stanley Cup made its rounds of Newport-Mesa. The trophy, which traditionally gets passed to each player on the championship team, logged appearances at Muldoon’s, Fashion Island and the Orange County Performing Artscenter. That last location was an especially fitting one. Newport Beach businessman Henry Samueli and his wife, Susan, who recently had a theater named after them at the Artscenter, are the owners of the Ducks and helped guide them to their first title.

NEWPORT BEACH — Dean Perkins has been an Anaheim Ducks fan for three years now. He would have been a fan for four years, but his fourth birthday is still a ways off. The Costa Mesa resident grew up in a household that practically reveres the recent Stanley Cup champions — and he had gotten the spirit himself almost before he learned to walk. According to his mother, Jennifer Perkins, Dean counts the Wild Wing mascot among his personal friends, and he’s anticipating the day when he’s old enough to play on a team.
