BOSTON -- Western Michigan hockey alumn Jamal Mayers became the third Bronco in program history to lift the Stanley Cup after the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Boston Bruins, 4-2, in a best-of-seven series.

Mayers joins former goalie Glenn Healy and general manager Neil Smith, who won the cup with the New York Rangers in 1994.

"We are so proud of Jamal," said Western Michigan head coach Andy Murray. "He is a great ambassador for Western Michigan hockey on and off the ice and is a great professional."

Mayers, 38, played four seasons with WMU from 1992-96. He appeared in 155 career games with the Broncos, tallying 159 points on 55 goals and 104 assists. He has played in 978 career games in the NHL and wraps up his second season with the Blackhawks, appearing in 103 games with them.
