Los Angeles Kings forward Anze Kopitar and his dog, Gustl, created a new meaning to the expression "breakfast of champions."

Kopitar's choice of cuisine was cereal eaten out of the Stanley Cup, with Gustl enjoying a treat of his own in a miniaturized version of hockey's greatest prize. The breakfast began a memorable day for the Kings' leading scorer in the regular season (29 goals, 70 points) and the NHL leader in the Stanley Cup Playoffs (five goals, 26 points).

Two years after Kopitar became the first Slovenian player to ever win the Cup, he returned to his homeland once again a champion. Among the highlights of the afternoon was a helicopter tour of Slovenia with his wife, Ines, and a boat ride on Lake Bled. He later arrived to Podmezakla Hall in Jesenice for photo opportunities with friends, family and fans and an in-line hockey tournament.
