There's a new budding star in the Pittsburgh Penguins media scene.

Alex Letang, the 7-year-old son of Penguins defenseman Kris Letang, again entertained by doing a media availability with his dad and grilling Pittsburgh goalie Tristan Jarry after the 2020 Honda NHL All-Star Game.

Letang stole the show with his media availability on Friday where he said he'd be interested in wearing Sidney Crosby's No. 87 for his potential future in Pittsburgh.

He also enjoyed the Mascot Game.

Tweet from @penguins: Alex Letang on his favorite part of the weekend, the mascots game: "They all signed my jersey! I really liked when they signed it and I had fun with the mascots. It was really funny because the mascot of Vegas put me in his mouth. He eated all of my face."

Aside from interviewing Jarry, Alex once again answered questions alongside his dad after the Metropolitan Division lost to the Atlantic 9-5 in the first game at Enterprise Center on Saturday.

"I really wanted to come to the All-Star Game and not miss this," Alex told the Penguins website. "I wanted to be with my dad. … I was excited. We came to St. Louis, just the two of us, and I really had fun. I really liked it."

Kris also enjoyed the chance to bond with his son.

"It means a lot," he told the Penguins website. "Maybe one day I will not have the chance to go. This year was good timing. He is well-aware of what's going on and loves hockey."
