Blackhawks goalie Scott Darling had his turn with the Stanley Cup on Monday and decided to take it to his hometown of Lemont.

Darling, who attended Lemont High School, paraded the Stanley cup through the streets of Lemont before brining the cup to his former high school for all the residents to get a glance of the legendary trophy.

Once the Blackhawks goalie arrived at Lemont High School, there was a large crowd waiting to see the cup, but Darling wasn’t letting the trophy out of his sight.

During the ceremony, the Lemont Mayor Brian Reaves presented Darling with a hometown gift. Reaves renamed the street where Darling grew up on to Scott Darling Drive.

Darling only played in five postseason games, but Lemont treated him as if he won the Conn Smythe trophy.
