Kings Fan Honors Fallen Scouts With Stanley Cup Champions Tribute at 9/11 Memorial (Photo)

There weren’t many people who weren’t touched in some way by the horrific events of Sept. 11, 2001, and that goes for the sports world as well.

The Los Angeles Kings lost a pair of scouts on that fateful day, as both Ace Bailey and Mark Bavis (a Massachusetts native) were on Flight 175 out of Boston, which was supposed to be set for a cross-country flight back to Los Angeles. That plane ended up being one of the planes hijacked and flown into the World Trade Center.

More than 10 years later, the Kings raised the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history, after defeating the New Jersey Devils on Monday night. 

One Kings fan in New York City decided to honor the memory of Bailey and Bavis by placing a Stanley Cup champions hat on their names at the 9/11 memorial at Ground Zero where the World Trade Center used to stand.

See the photo below from Kings fan Dave Krasne’s Twitter account. Stick tap to Puck Daddy and Hockey Wilderness for pointing this out.
