Talbot's visit puts smiles on patients' faces @NHLdotcom
It's no secret that Penguins center Maxime Talbot is among the best personalities on the roster. His playful demeanor and natural exuberance helps to keep teammates sane throughout the rigorous journey an 82-game regular season provides.

Talbot's ability to make others feel good about themselves stretches beyond the walls of the locker room. Talbot displayed that character trait last Thursday afternoon when he took time to visit the Hillman Cancer Center in Shadyside.

Making hospital visits is nothing new to Talbot, who often visits Children's Hospital in Lawrenceville to meet with young kids. However, Talbot's visit to the Hillman Center – which was his first – hit home for the 26-year-old, as his mother, Lucie, is a breast cancer survivor.

"My mom had breast cancer, so this is a cause that has obviously touched my heart," Talbot said. "I had a free afternoon, so I wanted to take the chance to stop by and talk to them and hopefully entertain them a bit."
