A surprise in a black box rolled through the halls at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh on Monday.
The Stanley Cup — that silver symbol of hockey greatness — went on display for some of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ youngest fans.
“It’s like one chance in a lifetime. Some people don’t get to do this,” said Yaheim Young, of Penn Hills.
“I thought I was on cloud nine, to say the least,” said Zachary Roberts, of Harwick.
Some of the Penguins accompanied the Cup to the hospital. Jake Guentzel, Brian Dumoulin and Bryan Rust showed up to meet many of the patients.
“It’s special and heartwarming to see all these kids so excited to see it and to bring it back. It means a lot to them,” Guentzel said.
