Brag Photo: What Happened to the Kings Net from the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Final?
Posted On 22 Jun 2012 / 12 Comments
It was one of the most memorable Stanley Cup Playoff runs in history where the underdog Los Angeles Kings knocked off some of the best teams in the NHL on their way to the franchise’s first-ever championship. And collectors have been scurrying to snatch up whatever collectibles they can from Kings, but we just scored one of the most unique ones you could net. That’s right, we were able to acquire one of the nets from the Stanley Cup Final in Los Angeles used in games 3, 4 and 6. Check out members of our Customer Care team showing it off!
This is the same net that Jonathan Quick and Martin Brodeur played in front of for games 3, 4 and 6!
There are two NHL logo patches on the net that make it extra cool.
This is the big patch from the base of the net
This is a smaller NHL patch from the netting.
Now the question is, what to do with it? The obvious thing for us to do would be to cut it up, embed them in trading cards and insert them into 2012-13 NHL trading card releases for Kings fans to find. Maybe even have some of the Kings players like Jonathan Quick, Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown and others sign those cards. But there’s part of us that doesn’t want to cut it up. Maybe we can do something else unique with it. What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
