    Defenseman Nick Leddy took Lord Stanley's Cup to his hometown of Eden Prairie, Minn., on Thursday.

    The Stanley Cup on Thursday went to the Twin Cities.

    Specificially, it traveled to Eden Prairie, the southwest suburb where Nick Leddy is from. The 22-year-old defenseman helped the Chicago Blackhawks win the NHL title last month, and per pro hockey's tradition each player on the championship squad gets to take the Stanley Cup with him to his hometown for a summer visit.
