Kaunisto the correspondent reports from Nolan’s Cup party

Former Kings prospect Ray Kaunisto is in transition. After playing in Manchester for the past two seasons, his contract wasn’t renewed and he’s currently in search of a team – a process he talked with us about a few weeks ago here.

For the early part of the summer he shut down his twitter account, much to the disappointment of the legions of hockey fans (and players) who counted on him for their educations in all things Yooper.

However, he recently began spewing out his wisdom in 140 characters again and even volunteered to be our official correspondent at a party thrown by one of his good friends earlier today.

We knew we were in for a good time when Kaunisto opened things up with the always important question – ‘What to wear to a Stanley Cup party?’

The following our some exclusive pics he took during the festivities with Jordan Nolan and crew…

caption: Nothing like a dip with the Stanley Cup eh?!

caption: The party bus

caption: It has it’s own spot on public transit. Sault Ste. Marie

caption: We got @kootsy4point0 sippin bubbly out of the cup

caption: This guy knows how to hoist a trophy

caption: The cup is going to sleep. The boys are just getting started. Me and Noles with a quick last pic

caption: The @monarchshockey family should be proud!

caption: Sault Ste. Marie’s finest. Both sides. Sister cities
