The Stanley Cup's Visit To This Neonatal ICU Will Melt Your Heart

Every winning player gets one day with the Cup, and Andrew Desjardins spent it with the families of the tiniest patients.

The Stanley Cup made one of its more heartwarming stops in a neonatal care unit on Tuesday.

Chicago Blackhawks player Andrew Desjardins brought the cup to Health Sciences North in Sudbury, where families had a chance to pose with the trophy.

At one point, the Cup was literally overflowing with adorable newborns.
