North End Bar & Grill in Hermosa Beach got a surprise in the wee hours of the morning Tuesday when Los Angeles Kings players stopped by to share the team's first Stanely Cup, according to TMZ.

The local bar is a favorite hangout for goalie Jonathan Quick and other players who decided a celebration at the venue was in order.

"The Stanley Cup was on the bar," owner John Courts told the Los Angeles Times. "To see it in the house, to touch it, it's just special…. I'm really speechless."

Courts told the Times he had "no idea" the Kings would show at his place. 

"It was amazing, it was beyond anything," he said. "Just tell the world these guys are really great."
