NSH@PIT: Former Penguin Tyler Kennedy makes an impressive catch in the crowd

Whenever a puck gets tipped out of play, a lucky hockey fan gets to go home with a free souvenir.

During Monday’s Pittsburgh Penguins game at PPG Paints arena, one of those lucky hockey fans happened to be former NHL player Tyler Kennedy.

In the second period of the game, a puck was deflected into the crowd and the former Penguins forward made a smooth left-handed grab to snag the puck out of the air.

Of course, he gave the puck right to his young son, resulting in a beaming, ear-to-ear smile.

Kennedy was drafted by the Penguins in 2004 and spent six seasons with Pittsburgh. He won the Stanley Cup with the team in 2009. He was traded to the San Jose Sharks in 2013, and also played with the New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils before retiring in 2017.

He might be seven years retired from the NHL, but clearly his reflexes are still intact. Much to his son’s delight, too.
