The Los Angeles Kings won their first Stanley Cup in franchise history and will be receiving their championship rings on opening day. Even though their rings aren’t supposed to be unveiled until then, it looks like there has already been a leak.

According to Puck Daddy, Francesca Leiweke, the daughter of AEG CEO Tim Leiweke (AEG owns the Kings), shared a photo on her Instagram account Thursday of the ring seen above. She later deleted her post, but the photo was preserved by a Twitter user for all of us to see.

The Kings actually had a press conference on Thursday to celebrate the new season beginning, and they sent their ice girls around to local McDonald’s to raffle off replica rings. It’s possible Leiweke was just sharing a picture of a replica ring. Either way, we still have a good idea of what the rings will look like.

Kings to visit the White House later this season
