VIDEO: Willie Mitchell finally gets his Day with the Cup

Defenseman Willie Mitchell has given us some great quotes since signing with the Kings two summers ago. However, it’s a conversation from late this past season that ended up being one of the more popular articles we’ve done with him. Just as the playoffs were kicking off, we published a feature piece on Mitchell that began with the quote “I really do believe we’re a team that has a shot at winning it all.”

Near the end of that article, the 35-year old native of British Columbia added some punch to things – not just with a statement, but something more akin to a longing being described by person who felt their life was incomplete. You could not only hear it, you could feel it when Mitchell said, “I want a day with the Stanley Cup!”

That conversation seemed to hang in the air over the next two months – until we asked him about it after the Stanley Cup parade and he gave us this interview with tears in his eyes.

Below, we give you the trilogy, if you will. The conclusion to the story.

Here are some videos from this weekend, where Mitchell finally had his Day with the Cup…
