The 100th birthday is always a special one. And the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions made sure it was one for the National Hockey League.

The Penguins shared a video on Sunday featuring team mascot, Iceburgh, throwing a surprise party for the NHL complete with party guests and a custom-made hockey rink cake.

And that was just one of the wishes tweeted out by teams Sunday as the NHL celebrated its 100th birthday.

The NHL kicked things off by tweeting out the first-ever schedule.

Then the league's teams followed suit.

The Buffalo Sabres had a little party complete with favors.
