Montreal bar owner Jean-Francois Leduc touches up his reproduction of the Stanley Cup made with about 22 pounds of bacon in support of his Canadiens ahead of the start of the playoffs.

Every hockey player dreams of someday hoisting Lord Stanley’s Cup. Thanks to Jean-Francois Leduc, there could be a greater reward to winning hockey’s ultimate prize: eating it.

The Montreal bar owner, who clearly has too much time — and bacon — on his hands, has designed a Stanley Cup made up of 22 pounds of beautiful, greasy pork strips to get himself pumped up for the Stanley Cup playoffs, which begin Wednesday.

Leduc, whose bar specializes in bacon-based products (how’s a bacon cocktail sound?), made the pork-filled chalice in support of his Montreal Canadiens, who will play Ottawa in a first-round series.

In case you have forgotten — we haven’t — Montreal’s 2014 playoff run was ended by the Rangers in Eastern Conference Finals.
