CHICAGO, IL – On Sunday, the Chicago Blackhawks released their much-awaited Stanley Cup rings.

Bucking the trend of the flashy, diamond-encrusted rings of recent years, the team has opted for a much more laid-back version. Team spokesman Rick Wallace said they were proud of the result.

"Rather than making them out of typical white gold, we decided on the more practical stainless steel, and instead of a team logo stuffed with gaudy, expensive laser-cut diamonds, we went minimalist," Wallace told The Elbow.

"Hockey players are more practical than guys from the NFL and NBA. They want a ring they can wear every day. So we answered their call."
