“I was so happy for you,” she could be heard saying to her grandson. “And you played such a wonderful game.”“Thank you for all your support, gram,” the younger O’Reilly can be heard saying in response.Quick stop to see O’Reilly’s former school. We bet his “What I Did This Summer” essay would be pretty good this year. #stlblues pic.twitter.com/aQFw6550yd— St. Louis Blues 🏆 (@StLouisBlues) July 25, 2019Of course, the Stanley Cup was not the only hardware present for the hometown visit. O’Reilly brought the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl, the Conn Smythe and Frank J. Selke Trophy along for the ride, laying each of them out in front of his old school. A trip through town in a fire truck brought O’Reilly to the local fire department’s station and he even got to hang out at the top of the vehicle’s platform. He followed up on that dream with two goals and an assist over the final two games of the series, leading the Blues to the franchise’s first-ever Stanley Cup. One of the rewards Stanley Cup champs reap after winning it all is spending an individual day with the trophy. So, O’Reilly brought the hardware — which is only 28 years older than Granny O’Reilly herself — to his hometown of Seaworth, Ont., and straight to the matriarch of the family.For the first time since he won the #StanleyCup, Ryan O’Reilly was reunited with his 99-year-old granny. #stlblues pic.twitter.com/q2MyPx1ACB— St. Louis Blues 🏆 (@StLouisBlues) July 25, 2019O’Reilly greeted his grandmother, who was sporting a crown meant for a queen that said her moniker, ‘Granny O’Reilly,’ with a warm embrace. According to the team, it was the first time the centerman had seen her since winning it all on June 12. St. Louis Blues forward Ryan O’Reilly called his 99-year-old grandmother, Deidre O’Reilly, one of his “biggest supporters” before Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.“Oh absolutely,” the eventual Conn Smythe Trophy winner told reporters when asked if his grandmother follows his career closely. “She’ll send me quite a few emails, just saying congratulations on the game. She follows it very closely and she’s obviously a big part of my career as well. I remember her buying me skates when I was younger multiple times. Yeah, I hope I can get her a Stanley Cup.”
