Chris Sutter was in the news earlier this week when Toronto Star columnist Bruce Arthur put a spotlight on the relationship he has with his dad, Los Angeles Kings coach Darryl Sutter. He'll be in the news again after his touching interview with Anze Kopitar on the ice during the Kings' Stanley Cup celebration.

Chris, who has Down syndrome, has a close relationship with the Kings. As Kopitar says, he's like a brother. So it was only natural that they would not only have him on the ice, but also have him lift the Stanley Cup and have his own moment with hockey's ultimate prize.

After lifting the trophy, he also got his postgame interview, joining Kopitar with NBC's Jeremy Roenick. Unlike his often curt father, Chris was more than happy to talk.

“Well for my dad, it was a great year for him… Let's do it again,” he said with the utmost confidence.

It's no wonder why he wants to see his pals on the Kings win the top prize again. Here's one of the great images of the entire celebration via Greg Wyshynski of Puck Daddy:

Pure joy. The best.
