LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Kings and the Stanley Cup paid a visit to the troops at the Bob Hope USO (United Service Organizations) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) on October 9, 2012.
The Bob Hope USO at LAX, operated by the USO Greater Los Angeles Area, is a stopover of sorts for troops traveling through LAX on their way to their next duty, or while on their way home after serving in a distant location.

On Tuesday evening, the LA Kings Ice Crew, and Bailey (Kings mascot), along with Kings color commentators Daryl Evans and Jim Fox, who represented the Los Angeles Kings Alumni Association, were on hand to honor the troops and take photos, with the Stanley Cup front and center.
Here’s a photo essay from that evening by photographer David Sheehan, which you can view as a slide show, or as a gallery, below.
