SHARE Blackhawks’ names engraved on the Stanley Cup; Mayers and Carcillo included

The Blackhawks released a picture of the Stanley Cup, with the 2013 team’s names newly engraved. Jamal Mayers, who didn’t qualify to have his name automatically placed on the Cup — a player must play 23 regular-season games or at least one Stanley Cup Final game — was there, meaning the Hawks petitioned the league to have the veteran leader included.

“Good for Jammer, I’m happy for him,” Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said. “He was a big part of our team. We loved what he brought — his experience, his leadership, his professionalism was in the right spot. I’m sure he had a great summer when he hoisted the Cup and had it in St. Louis. It’s always a proud moment, I’m happy for him.”

Daniel Carcillo also was included, having played in 23 of 48 regular-season games. Ben Smith qualified by appearing in Game 3 of the Final in Boston when Marian Hossa was injured.

“I just saw the picture,” Quenneville said. “That’s very cool.”
