The Stanley Cup got wet and wild this week. USA Today reported that Jeff Zatkoff, a Pittsburgh Penguins goalie, spent his day with the trophy in his hometown of Cary, North Carolina and took it down a water slide.

The third-string goalie played 14 regular-season games and two playoff games for the Penguins. It was announced earlier this month that he signed with the Los Angeles Kings.
Zatkoff joins the long list of players that have had memorable moments with the Cup. Last month, hockey legend Mario Lemieux hosted a house party with the trophy and plenty of beautiful women to celebrate his win.
