Penguins Grant 10,000th Wish

The Penguins will help the Make-A-Wish Foundation grant their 10,000th wish today by allowing 8-year-old Jacob Anderson become a "Penguin for a Day."

Jacob will be shown the ropes of all the typical Penguins gameday activities. He will be signing his contract in GM Ray Shero's office at the Mellon Arena at 10 AM after which he'll be escorted to his locker room stall in the Penguins' dressing room complete with his own official nameplate and jersey. Tonight, prior to the Penguins game against the Carolina Hurricanes, he'll get to sit in the penalty box during the pre-game warm-up and will sit with his family in rinkside seats where he'll be visited by Iceburgh.
“The Penguins organization is honored to assist the Make-A-Wish Foundation in granting this very special 10,000th wish,” Shero said, “and we’re looking forward to Jacob becoming a Pittsburgh Penguin on his big day.”
