Just something cute about Kristopher Letang #58 of the Penguins

New Penguins teammates

Defenseman Kristopher Letang came out to take a look at the ice at the St. Pete Times Forum before practice yesterday and found himself on the ice with penguins.

Real penguins.

They were being videotaped as part of the scoreboard show. The penguins sauntered out of the runway on a red carpet, then waddled into the penalty box. Letang, the only person on the ice besides the handlers and videographers, spent some time petting them before heading into the dressing room and putting on his equipment.

"It was funny to see our logo in real life. And we're in Tampa, and when you think of penguins you thing of cold in the north," Letang said. "But it was really fun and they're really soft."
