'Stanley Pups' pose with Blackhawks' Brian Bickell, Cup

CHICAGO (WLS) -- The Stanley Cup has officially gone to the dogs, courtesy of Chicago Blackhawks forward Brian Bickell.

The NHL Champion and his wife, Amanda, posed for pictures with six adoptable dogs next to the Stanley Cup.

The "Stanley Pups" were rescued from high-kill shelters around the city and the couple is hoping they will find loving, forever homes.

Each dog has a unique, hockey-themed name - Josh Zamboni, Duncan, Bickell, Lorde Sage, Crawford and, of course, Stanley Pup.
