Ex-Penguins champ hosting 'Give Hockey a Shot' program for kids in North Park on Saturday
Former Pittsburgh Penguin and Stanley Cup Champion Tyler Kennedy will be on hand at North Park on Saturday for a program to give kids an opportunity to explore whether hockey is the game for them.
The “Give Hockey a Shot” program sponsored by Penguins Foundation is a chance for children to try on hockey gear and hit the ice with Kennedy, who will be joined by the Penguins mascot, Iceburgh, who will greet fans.
The event is scheduled to run from noon to 4 p.m. Kennedy and Iceburgh will be on hand to greet and skate with fans from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.
The event will include face painting, balloon art and food.
Participants will be charged the regular rink admission and be entered in a drawing to win a pair of Penguins tickets.
The ice rink is located at 200 Pearce Mill Road in McCandless.
