With hockey's biggest event going on, were reminded of another prominent team and Stanley Cup champ, inconspicuously missing from the proceedings.

A little while ago, Michigan based contributor Lance Martinez captured video of former Detroit Red Wings right wing/four-time Stanley Cup champion Darren McCarty, as well as current Red Wings left wing/center Justin Abdelkader signing autographs (video below).

McCarty signed at a Kroger grocery store, in the Detroit suburb of Taylor, Michigan. The British Columbia native scored 120 goals and dished out 155 assists in his 15-season pro career.

Abdelkader, a Michigan native, appeared at Meijer grocery store, also in Taylor. The fifth year man netted 10 goals and earned 18 assists in 2013-14.

All told, the boys from Hockeytown have won 11 titles, including 4 since 1997.
