At 9 years old, Roman Marcotte has the hockey skills of a player twice his age.
The young player from Anchorage, Alaska, recently starred in a viral video where he showed off his skills while wearing a Sidney Crosby jersey. The Pittsburgh Penguins invited Marcotte out to see a game where they rolled out the red carpet.
Hey, if you are catching the eye of Hockey Hall of Famer and Penguins owner Mario Lemieux, you are definitely doing something right.
Marcotte got to spend the entire week with the team and got a great photo with his hero.
During a video interview with the Penguins team website, Marcotte left no doubt about his dreams.
"My goal is to be in the championship with my home team and then to be in the NHL," he said.
His preferred team is no surprise.
"Pittsburgh Penguins," he said.
