Pittsburgh Penguins Player Has Son Baptized In Stanley Cup


Imagine being able to tell all of your friends growing up that you were once laying inside of the Stanley Cup. Well, that’s going to be the reality for Pittsburgh Penguins winger Josh Archibald.

This week, Archibald and his wife, Bailey, took the opportunity to give their newborn son a very unique experience.

During his day with the Cup, Archibald had his three-week-old son, Brecken, baptized inside of the Stanley Cup. The ceremony took place in Brainerd, Minn.

Luckily for the internet, Hockey Hall of Fame’s Keeper of the Cup Philip Pritchard was there to capture photos of the moment.

Brecken is now officially the member of a hockey family.

Along with his father being a member of the Penguins, Brecken’s grandfather, Jim Archibald, played for the Minnesota North Stars during the 1980’s.

It is interesting to think that just a couple of weeks ago Archibald’s teammate Phil Kessel was eating hot dogs out of the Cup. I guess they are both religious experiences in their own right.
