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.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
