Winning the Stanley Cup was not enough for Colorado Avalanche defenseman Jack Johnson. Neither was carrying it around, or drinking from it.

Not Johnson. He had to turn the Cup into a religious experience.

That’s right. Johnson had each of his three children get baptized … right in the Cup.

Now, this wasn’t necessarily some publicity stunt. Johnson and wife Kelly had already planned to get their children baptized long before they ever even knew the outcome of the playoffs. It just so happened that pre-arranged date fell on the day Johnson got possession of the Stanley Cup.

So hey, why not?

Johnson, 35, has had a long and battle-tested career since entering the NHL in 2007. He spent time with the Los Angeles Kings, Columbus Blue Jackets, Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers before signing on with the Avs before the start of this last season.

And this last season is the first that he emerged as a champion.

So he has been waiting a long time for his day with the Cup. Clearly, he found a way to make good use of it. Forever and ever amen, say hockey fans everywhere.

What do you think?
