Kris Letang wasn't at the 2017 Honda NHL All-Star Game with Pittsburgh Penguins teammate Sidney Crosby, but he did get to spend time with a penguin.

Letang, along with his wife and son, Alexander, spent the weekend at the Pittsburgh Zoo seeing numerous animals, including a baby penguin named Letang.

Letang's wife posted the picture on Instagram with the caption "Meeting Letang and more at the zoo!" Kris Letang copied the picture, but altered the caption.

Kris Letang has four goals and 19 assists in 30 games this season. He's been out since Jan. 14 because of a lower-body injury.
