Penguins make dreams come true, sign kids to special contracts through Make-A-Wish program

PITTSBURGH — It was a dream come true for a group of six kids. Pittsburgh Penguins General Manager Jim Rutherford signed them to special one-day contracts through the Make-A-Wish program.

Per the terms of their one-day deals, the group of youngsters was treated to breakfast in the locker room with Penguins players, a special spot to watch the team practice and afterwards, a meet and greet on the ice.
