Members of the Los Angeles Kings celebrated their NHL championship win at Tao’s Worship Thursday party at the Venetian.
Nearly all of the team, including Trevor Lewis, Jeff Carter, Jarrett Stoll, Brad Richardson, Drew Doughty, Mike Richards, Alec Martinez, Jordan Nolan and more entered Tao Nightclub with Lord Stanley in tow to stunned fans snapping photos in disbelief that they were seeing the iconic trophy.
After being introduced by a presentation of a little person dressed as a “King” on his throne, the Kings players each took turns drinking Champagne out of the top of the Stanley Cup.
As the fun continued and fans clamored to get pictures, each player took the 35 pound silver trophy and hoisted it over their heads as DJ Five gave them shout outs and the crowd cheered each time.
Before they departed, the team made their way up to the stage above the dance floor so the entire club could get one last glimpse of Lord Stanley. They posed with the Stanley Cup as flashes blinked wildly around the club. As they were exiting, some players grabbed toy king crowns off the prop cart and wore them proudly out of the club.
