The always fashionable Stanley Cup made a return visit to the Jersey Shore on Tuesday.

Vegas director of hockey administration Katy Headman Boettinger brought the Cup to South Jersey and Delaware on Tuesday. The Cup made an appearance in Avalon, N.J., where her grandparents had a summer home, and Ocean View, Del., where her parents live.

On Monday, Vegas assistant coach John Stevens brought the Stanley Cup to Sea Isle City, where he has a summer home. Vegas defeated Florida to win the Stanley Cup.

“In a way, we paid tribute to our family’s two summertime homes at the seashore that have meant so much to us over the years,” Boettinger told

“We began displaying the Stanley Cup in Avalon, N.J., which is where my grandmother lived, and where we spent so many summers and holidays growing up.”

The Cup made the rounds down the Shore, going to Hawk Haven Vineyard and Winery in Rio Grande, N.J., and the Ugly Mug restaurant in Cape May, according to

Then, Lord Stanley’s mug made the trip on the Cape May-Lewes Ferry to Delaware.

“This has been an amazing ride,” Katy’s husband David Boettinger told

“When we hopped onto the ferry, the Cup was displayed. It seemed like everyone on the boat came to take pictures. 

“The captain made an announcement about the trophy, then he had a photo with it. People had tons of questions about the trophy, and we answered them all.”

Katy, who earned a master’s degree at Penn, is the 19th woman to have her name engraved on the Cup.
