So much personality here. Who even is this man? (Photo: @keeperofthecup)

In June, former Washington Capitals defenseman Jeff Schultz became a Stanley Cup champion after his Los Angeles Kings vanquished the New York Rangers in five games. Now, for some of you, that thought still makes you laugh/cry/shudder.

But today we must put on our big-boy pants. Sarge is spending the day with The Cup in his hometown of Calgary. Ish just got even realer.

The first place Mr. Nasty took the Stanley Cup was — and this is sweet — the Ronald McDonald House of Southern Alberta.

Take a look at some of these photos and try not to smile.

Immediately after that, Sarge took The Cup to the Calgary Fire House where he gave it a fancy hat.

Later, he hit up the police station.

Then to conclude the day, Sarge took a dip in the pool with his new friend while wearing a suit. You can’t make this stuff up.

And also took a drink.

It seems like Schultz is making a lot of friends these days.

    Does anyone know the final verdict if he is going to get his name on the cup or not? aka will fate kick Caps fans in the no no spot yet another time?

    We wrote about that the night the Kings won the Stanley Cup. He will not. Reasoning here:

    They’re not going to petition for him? Damned shame. Still, I’m glad to see he got his day with the cup. These pictures are sweeter than a basket full of puppies and kittens.

    He’s a good dude.

  • GraboDaboDoo

    I might be one of the few that’s happy to see him with the Cup. Good for you, Schultzy!

  • Sarah

    It’s all good with me, especially if he’s gonna do classy stuff like this with it! RMH is a great charity.

    Okay, that’s nice. It still makes me want to puke because Jeff Schultz.

  • James Hare

    Kinda makes it seem like he deserved it. I really like Jeff Schultz. I don’t think subtracting Schultz did anything good for the team. He may not have been Zdeno Chara in a more unassuming Canadian form but he was a decent stay at home defenseman who go the job done. Probably could have used somebody like him last year. I guess nice guys don’t always finish last.

    Are there any restrictions as to who gets a ring?

  • SeminAllOverTheIce

    he was ok…at his best. Dont forget he was getting $3 mil per at that point. DEF not worth $3 mil per for a SAHD who couldnt skate & often blew tires as well as benefited from a Mike Green playing well. Now at $700k per for a couple injury call up games and (3 playoff games?), not as tough of a pill to swallow.

    Having said all that, kudos for him for hoisting.

  • JoeA

    I wore my Double Nickel Caps jersey last night in honor of Sarge’s day with the Cup. I couldn’t be happier for the guy.

  • Sarah

    He does get a ring. And I say good for him!

  • OvechkinFiresAndScores08

    Of all people…

  • OvechkinFiresAndScores08

    Although what he did with it is very generous.

  • Michael Williamson

    I’d still rather have Schultz in than erskine

  • CapsPsycho

    Wow. How tall are the front bumpers on fire trucks? Schultz is 6’6 and his legs are dangling like a little kid’s.

  • Glenn Havinoviski

    He did have that big plus/minus in 2000 and `’got big contract” like Ovi said. The Kings obviously thought highly enough of him to promote him to the big team and give him postseason action where he did a good job. And so he gets his day with the Cup.
