ST. LOUIS — The first St. Louis native to win the Stanley Cup as a coach had his day with the best trophy in all of sports.
Sean Ferrell is the video and skills coach for the St. Louis Blues. His designated day with the Cup was Sunday, and he made sure to share the excitement with hundreds of fans and those who helped get him to where he is today.
A big part of the day was spent in Webster Groves.
The city’s police department shared video on Facebook of Ferrell carrying the Cup across the Webster Groves Aquatic Center pool deck. Fans enjoying a hot summer day by the pool clapped and cheered ‘LET’S GO BLUES!’ as he walked by with the Cup hoisted over his head.
Ferrell then took the Stanley Cup inside the ice rink where hundreds of eager fans were able to see the Cup for themselves, touch it and snap a picture with it.
Webster Groves police reported more than 500 people posed with the Cup, which included at least a couple babies inside the bowl and even a dog next to it.

Then, it was off to Ferrell’s high school alma mater, SLUH. He was spotted with the Jr. Bills ice hockey team, which is the reigning back-to-back Missouri state champions.
