(TSX / STATS) -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Josh Archibald cherished his day with the Stanley Cup, although it's highly unlikely his three-week-old child will retain the memory.

Archibald, 24, and his wife had Brecken baptized in the Stanley Cup during a ceremony held in Brainerd, Minn.

While babies have "celebrated" with the Stanley Cup over recent years, Archibald's baptism is believed to be the first such event since 2008. At that time, Detroit forward Tomas Holmstrong arranged for his seven-week-old niece to be baptized after the Red Wings defeated Pittsburgh in the final.

The Penguins' player is the son of former Minnesota North Stars forward Jim Archibald.
