PITTSBURGH - Five kids were “signed” Saturday to special one-day contracts with the Pittsburgh Penguins, which partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford announced the signing of 8-year-old Wyatt Hunt, 11-year-old Jastin “JJ” Darts, 15-year-old Noah Turner, 17-year-old Jacob Bradley and 14-year-old Tyler Palmer during a press conference at PPG Paints Arena.
After the press conference, the new honorary Penguins and their families enjoyed breakfast in the locker room with players. They then attended the team’s practice, which they watched from Suite 66 before joining players on the ice.
