Next Up: Eddie Johnston's Day with Lord Stanley

There was really nothing elaborate or extravagant for Pens Senior Advisor and former head coach Eddie Johnston's day with the Cup. On Saturday, July 11, he brought it to his daughter's home in Upper St. Clair making good on a promise to her neighborhood that if the Pens won the Stanley Cup, "he would bring it to them."
"It's great for our neighborhood here," said Johnston. "I promised them if we won the Cup I would bring it to the cul-de-sac. And I did that."
And while celebrating the Stanley Cup, Johnston also raised money for the Mario Lemieux Foundation asking those who attended to make a donation.

UPCOMING DATES (more to come as I learn of them):
July 21st - Jordan Staal (Thunder Bay)
