The Pittsburgh Penguins are back.
... Tomorrow. They’re back tomorrow, when they’ll get to raise their shiny new Stanley Cup banner in front of the Washington Capitals for their home opener at 6 p.m.
And that’s going to be fun!
But that’s still a day away. And don’t worry, even though they aren’t officially back on the ice just yet, the Penguins were still up to some very, very good stuff today.
Namely: puppies. They were hanging out with puppies.
Pickles just got to meet Phil Kessel during our #HockeyDay for Pittsburgh's animals in need! That's right - today is the photo shoot for the 2017 Penguins & Paws Calendar! Featuring your favorite Pittsburgh @Penguins players with some of our area's homeless pets, this calendar is a must-have for any Pens fan & pre-orders will be available soon! We're proud to be the Official Animal Shelter of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Thanks to the Pittsburgh @PensFoundation for making this fundraiser possible. #ARLSavesLives #AdoptWPHS
AND kitties! And the Stanley Cup, still!
Is there anything more pure than the Penguins hanging out with a bunch of baby animals, and all for a good cause? No, of course not.
Not only are these going to be featured on the cutest calendar ever, but it’s also all about helping out the pets in Pittsburgh who need it - so it’s pretty much a must-have.
