The Penguins goaltender, Marc-Andre Fleury, paid a visit to the delighted students in classes with James and Tammy Zeliff's children at Franklin Regional Middle School in Murrysville, Pennsylvania following Tuesday's practice.
Fleury took some of his goaltending equipment for the students to see and talked with the children about life as a National Hockey League netminder, his teammates and even his prediction on how the Steelers will do in the upcoming Super Bowl.
The students had an opportunity to ask Fleury questions, pose for pictures and receive autographs.
The school visit was to fulfill a “Bring Your Goalie To School” auction prize that Dr. Zeliff won at the Penguins’ annual charity gala. Proceeds from the gala benefitted the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and research to find a cure for such a devastating disease in children.
