Jonathan Quick AppearanceLos Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick scooped up the shimmering trophy he helped win a month earlier and lugged it to midfield at Hamden’s Joe Bruno Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Shadowing him were roughly four dozen children from the Hamden Youth Hockey Association. They’d come to get a glimpse of the famous Stanley Cup and the superstar goaltender that beat the New York Rangers to win it for the second time in three years.

At least a thousand members of the general public, license plates as far as Massachusetts and New York, showed up anyway hoping for a glimpse on the Stanley Cup. So organizers set up shop on the track around Bruno Field, where those without invitations would have a prime view of the happenings from the football stadium bleachers.

Jonathan’s appearance was also for a great cause. Proceeds from the afternoon, $20 was asked per photo  were donated to the education fund for the children of Jason Pagni, a local youth coach and friend of Quick’s who died in a car accident in January. Officials estimated 500 wrist bands were issued to the 2,000 who came through on Sunday.

“Jay was one of the best guys I ever met,” Quick said. “He was very special to me. I’ve known him for a long time. He was special to a lot of hockey players he coached and played with. I think there’s a lot of guys in this area who he taught and succeeded at college and pro level who all owe a lot to him. I was fortunate to be able to meet him and spend time with him and call him my friend. It means a lot to try to give back for everything he’s given to me.”
