It’s become a rite of passage for the Penguins players, making visits at different homes throughout the Pittsburgh region, spending time with fans, their kids, and even their pets.
From celebrating birthdays with kids to taking selfies with ticket holders, it was a fun day for the Penguins and the fans alike as they both get ready for the upcoming season to get underway.
Jake Guentzel even got quizzed about his health and the status of his ankle by one ticket holder.

"It’s getting there. Doing good. It’s coming along nice, so we’ll see," he said.
"Well, you’re a heck of a player. We love watching you play," Tyler's sister Deanna said. pic.twitter.com/tuITqzEznx
