The 2014 Stanley Cup champions Los Angeles Kings spent their Thursday in Las Vegas celebrating with the Stanley Cup on tow. A group of the players dined at Crush at the MGM Grand on Thursday, ordering lamb sirloin, roasted cauliflower, ricotta gnocchi, sea scallops Benny, octopus ceviche, grilled salmon and the 32-ounce braised short ribs.
The restaurant brought out a three-tier black and silver cake with a king’s crown on top and “Crush on Kings” written across it.
Later, players headed over to Beacher’s Madhouse at the MGM Grand, where Jeff Beacher, Paris Hilton and more were on hand to party.
Then it was off to XS Nightclub at Encore Las Vegas on Friday night, where the Stanley Cup champions were welcomed by light wands as they descended the stairs. The teammates were escorted to a table centrally located to overlook the dance floor as hosts held signs that proclaimed them champs and confetti rained down.
Defensemen Jeff Schultz, Drew Doughty, Jake Muzzin, Alec Martinez, centermen Jarret Stoll, Trevor Lewis, left wing Tanner Pearson and goaltender Martin Jones took turns showing off and proudly holding the Stanley Cup above their heads for the entire club to see. Once settled in their booth, the champions popped a bottle of bubbly, poured it into the famous trophy and drank throughout the evening.
