The Stanley Cup Joins The Fight Against Cancer (Photos & Video)

Stanley Cup and Hockey Fights CancerSunday, Sport Chalet hosted a very distinguished guest of honor at its downtown Los Angeles location. From 3 to 5pm, fans had the opportunity to rub shoulders with none other than the iconic Stanley Cup. The event was held in conjunction with Sport Chalet's alliance with Hockey Fights Cancer, the LA Kings Care Foundation and Children's Hospital Los Angeles. Sunday's happening marked the start of Hockey Fights Cancer's annual month-long campaign.

Fans of the defending champion Kings (also won the Cup in 2012) lined up in droves, both inside and outside the FIGat7th shopping complex, all for the opportunity to get up close and personal with sports' most famous trophy.

Former King Sean O'Donnell was also in attendance.

In addition, Amanda and Lindsey from the Kings Ice Crew stopped through to hang out with fans.
