Sep 1, 5:04 PM

The Los Angeles Kings' summer with the Stanley Cup is winding down, but on Sunday, the famous trophy made a stop at the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, CA.

As per Helene Elliot of the Los Angeles Timesthe museum "features the work of the late hockey-loving 'Peanuts' cartoonist," and Snoopy’s Home Ice, an arena that plays host to a world senior hockey tournament each year, among other puck-related events.

General manager Dean Lombardi used the opportunity to get in the right state of mind heading into a new season.

Snoopy himself stopped by for a photo with the Cup. Good boy.

No word on whether Lombardi asked to borrow Snoopy's doghouse in order to provide head coach Darryl Sutter with a more effective means of disciplining players.
