Matt Cullen’s kids are the luckiest - they got to play hockey with Phil Kessel

Who WOULDN’T want to play hockey with the Phil??

It looks like a group of some of the most loveable Pittsburgh Penguins decided to spend Christmas together.

Or at the very least, Christmas Eve.

Phil Kessel, Nick Bonino, Matt Cullen and respective families met up for a game night!

The best game of all, though? Without a doubt, it was hockey.

Man, can you imagine being one of Cullen’s kids? They were highlighted in a fantastic Players’ Tribune piece, and now there they are, living the life playing basement hockey with Stanley Cup Champion Phil Kessel. Those kids are living the dream.

Thank goodness all of these guys ended up in Pittsburgh. The Penguins acquired Bonino, Cullen, and Kessel over the course of the 2015 offseason; in the season and a half since then, the Penguins have been doing pretty amazing with them on board.

Merry Christmas!
