Chicago Blackhawks forward Bryan Bickell brought the Stanley Cup to his hometown of Orono, Ontario on Tuesday. Bickell, who is coming off a stellar postseason, celebrated the championship victory with his old community. In 2010, Bickell also decided to bring the Cup back to his beloved hometown following the Blackhawks Stanley Cup victory over Philadelphia.
The Blackhawks clearly view Bickell as an important piece to their roster going forward, evident by the team signing him to a four-year deal worth $16 million during the offseason. This past year, Bickell and Patrick Kane tied for second on the team in postseason goals by registering nine each. The left winger was also second on the team in points during the playoffs when he tallied a total of 17.
