The Stanley Cup Is Handed To The Winning Captain, Then What?

from Emily Kaplan of ESPN,

The Stanley Cup will fly back from Edmonton with the winning team to its playing city. But after that, nobody knows how hockey's most famous trophy will celebrate.

The NHL and the Hockey Hall of Fame are weighing options on what to do next with the Cup. Typically, each member of the winning team gets to spend a day with it in a location of his choice. That means the Stanley Cup and Cup Keeper travel thousands of miles, traversing borders and even continents.

But that may be unlikely during this pandemic.

One option is to have the winners stay in that city to celebrate with the Cup, as opposed to flying in and out of cities. However, that has yet to be determined. It's also unclear if there will be restrictions on how players celebrate; often they kiss and drink from the Cup, while passing it around from person to person.
