That's former Minnesota Wild star Marian Gaborik, standing in the ocean, hoisting the Stanley Cup.

He and the Los Angeles Kings won The Cup by ousting the New York Rangers in five games, four of which were sensational.

"It's unbelievable feeling," Gaborik said after the Game 5 win, according to ESPN. "It doesn't get better than this. When you get older, you appreciate it more. These chances don't come along every year, and I'm fortunate and grateful to be part of a Stanley Cup team."

Gaborik was a beast in the playoffs, leading the NHL with 14 goals, including two in the Stanley Cup Final.

Gaborik scored 219 goals during his career in Minnesota – a mark that is still far and away the most in franchise history. Mikko Koivu is second on the list with 130 goals. Koivu, however, is just ahead of Gaborik on the Wild's all-time points list (452 to 437), according to Hockey-Reference.com.

Gaborik posted these photos to Instagram on Tuesday afternoon at Hermosa Beach in Los Angeles County, California. Here he is sprinting towards the water.

Don't forget about former Wild defenseman Willie Mitchell. He also plays for the Kings, and this was his second time hoisting The Cup in L.A.
