When Matt Lorito and the Grand Rapids Griffins won the Calder Cup last month, the team held on to the trophy for five days, taking it to banquets and team functions and various other celebrations.
But it wasn’t until the oldest annually awarded hockey trophy — sorry Stanley, the 2005 lockout robbed you of the title — arrived at his home in Oakville this weekend, that Lorito had a chance to take a really good, close look it.
“When you take time to look at all the names, it’s amazing seeing all the guys who have gone on to great NHL careers,” Lorito said. “Patrick Sharp, Jeff Carter and Mike Richards with the (Philadelphia) Phantoms. That team was stacked. And Carey Price winning with Hamilton right out of junior. There are a lot of good names on there.”
