Kuhnhackl brings Stanley Cup to Germany

(Landshut, GER) — Tom Kuhnhackl has had a big year. On his second NHL contract, he finally got to make his NHL debut. Not just that, but he played 24 games in the playoffs, helping the Pittsburgh Penguins en route to a Stanley Cup – and becoming just the third German to ever win hockey’s ultimate prize, after Uwe Krupp and Dennis Seidenberg.

That called for a great celebration, and that’s exactly what Kuhnhackl did, bringing the Cup to his hometown of Landshut – the first time it has ever been in Germany.
