Left-winger, Dwight King, from Meadow Lake and his parents celebrate after the Los Angeles Kings win the Stanley Cup.

Two Saskatchewan-born hockey players had a big role in the Los Angeles Kings' Stanley Cup win.

Left-winger Dwight King is from Meadow Lake. He had two assists in the six to one win over the New Jersey Devils.

After the game King thanked his family for their support and his parents were able to venture onto the ice to pose with the Stanley Cup.

The second player is centre Jarret Stoll, from Neudorf, who grew up in the Yorkton area.

He was also thinking about his family.

"My parents are here," Stoll said. "My mom and dad, my sister, my brothers back home who couldn't make it ... love them all, love all the support back home in Saskatchewan and we're going to enjoy this for a while."

This was the first Stanley Cup win for the L.A. Kings.
