Ex-Bulldog, Spartans hoist Stanley Cup

Three former Michigan collegians hoisted the Stanley Cup last night as the Anaheim Ducks beat the Ottawa Senators, 6-2, to win the championship series in five games.

Forward Chris Kunitz, a four-year skater with Ferris State from 1999-2003, will have his name engraved on the Cup. Kunitz (pictured above) put up 25 goals in 81 regular-season games.

One of Anaheim's "black aces," rookie forward Drew Miller, also held the Cup aloft Wednesday night in southern California. He left Michigan State last spring with one year of eligibility remaining to sign with the Ducks.

Newell Brown, a Ducks assistant coach and former Michigan State player (1980-1984) and assistant (1987-1990), helped guide Anaheim to a 16-5 postseason mark with series wins over Minnesota, Vancouver, Detroit and Ottawa. Brown was also head coach at Michigan Tech from 1990-1992.

Congratulations to all from!
