St. Louis Blues forward Pat Maroon has been on plenty of handshake lines during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but Friday, he went for a high-five line.
Maroon showed up at McKelvey Elementary of the Parkway School District in St. Louis on Friday to help send kids off for the school year.
Maroon signed autographs and handed out hugs and high-fives to any of the kids who asked.
The St. Louis native signed with his hometown team as a free agent and has helped them to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 1970.
The Western Conference Champions, who will take on the Boston Bruins in Game 1 on Monday (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, SN, TVAS), have had handshake lines with the Winnipeg Jets, the Dallas Stars and the San Jose Sharks, so Maroon has had plenty of practice.
