FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - Komets legend Robbie Laird brought the Holy Grail of hockey to the Summit City on Tuesday night as the Stanley Cup was on display at the HOPE For Animals Clinic.
Laird is currently the head scout for the L.A. Kings who won the Cup back in June. Players, coaches, and staff of the organization get a day with the Cup as it travels the globe in celebration, and Laird wanted to bring the trophy to Fort Wayne.
Despite working for the Kings for 18 seasons Laird still calls the Summit City home.
About 1,500 people lined up at HOPE Clinic to snap pictures with the most recognizable trophy in the world of sports.
