Grand Rapids Griffins’ players, coaches to receive gorgeous Calder Cup Championship rings

The Grand Rapids Griffins posted an absolutely beautiful photo gallery of their Calder Cup rings being designed and made by a local ring-making company earlier today, and the Grand Rapids Press's Peter J. Wallner took note of the "bling" (and his article includes a 15-image photo gallery):

Following the franchise’s first Calder Cup championships, the team gave media a sneak peek at the rings players and team representatives will receive.

The rings, made in collaboration between Griffins’ representatives and Terryberry of Grand Rapids, include the Griffins and Red Wings logos intertwined and an inscription on the inside that says, “Earn this.”

About 131 rings will be made. They will be presented at a private ceremony.

The Griffins open the season Friday at Rochester. The first home game, which will feature the raising on the championship banner, will be Oct. 18.

And while the Griffins were hard at work doing other things this afternoon...

(I love that Trevor Parkes instantly takes the "hockey pose")

(And hey, given the amount of free time these guys have thanks to not playing until Friday, putt-putt and food comas are good things)

They're aware of what's coming:

Here's the design, per the Griffins' Flickr gallery (and all images are copyright the Grand Rapids Griffins, 2013):

And here's what the rings look like:

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
