On Tuesday, June 13, former Shattuck-St. Mary’s hockey player Teddy Blueger ‘12 and the Vegas Golden Knights captured their first ever Stanley Cup trophy after defeating the Florida Panthers in five games.  

The Knights entered the game leading the series 3-1 against the Panthers. After conceding twice in the first period, the Panthers were no match for the onslaught of goals in the following two periods as the Golden Knights claimed victory with a final score of 9-3. With this accomplishment, the Vegas Golden Knight became the second-fastest team to win the cup in the modern era of the NHL, behind the Edmonton Oilers who won their first Stanley Cup in five seasons. 

Teddy played for SSM from 2009 to 2012, making appearances for his national team of Latvia on both the youth and senior sides in the process. In 2012 as part of the Boys Prep team, he helped SSM win the Boys Tier 1 National Championship. Most recently, Teddy scored a total of four goals and assisted twelve times to round off his fifth season as a champion in the NHL, with one goal and one assist in this year’s playoffs.  

When asked what it was like to lift the Stanley Cup, Teddy told NHL Network, “It was amazing … I wanted to do a full lap you know, take it all in a little longer.” 

“Teddy plays a true two-hundred-foot game, wanting to keep the opponents from scoring just as much as producing and helping his own team score,” stated Tom Ward, Teddy’s former coach and Director of Boys Hockey. “Congratulations on getting the pinnacle of our sport - a Stanley Cup Champion!”
