CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli '87 and assistant general manager Don Sweeney '88, former teammates on the Harvard men's hockey team, each enjoyed a day with the Stanley Cup this summer after putting together the team that won the trophy as 2010-11 National Hockey League champion.
Chiarelli, an Ottawa, Ont., native, took the trophy home to Canada's capital, celebrating the championship—and his birthday—with friends and family. He made stops with the cup at the University of Ottawa, where he attended law school, and at the gymnastics school where his wife, Alicia, used to train and coach.
Sweeney stayed local on his day with the famed trophy. He and his sons paid a visit to Brookline for a visit with Jack Kirrane, the captain of the 1960 gold-medal U.S. Olympic team and the longtime rink manager at Harvard's Bright Hockey Center. After visiting some local policemen and firefighters, Sweeney invited family and friends to a barbeque and enjoyed some ice cream from the cup.
