Penguins player has son baptized in Stanley Cup

The Stanley Cup’s back-to-back tour with the Penguins wasn’t without a holy sacrament this year.

On Wednesday, Philip Pritchard, Hockey Hall of Fame’s Keeper of the Cup, shared a few snaps from the Michigan baptism of Pittsburgh winger Josh Archibald’s son in Lord Stanley’s Mug.

“Three-week-old Brecken Archibald gets baptized out of hockey’s Holy Grail (Brainerd, MN) #stanleycup @penguins @NHL @HockeyHallFame,” Pritchard tweeted.

While the Cup’s summer vacation also has included a trip on the back nine and cooking lessons, Archibald’s baby boy isn’t the first tot to be baptized in hockey’s treasured trophy.
