(Player Stocking Photos) Each year, the Penguins’ wives and girlfriends have designed or created a holiday project to auction off online to benefit local children’s charities. This season, they have decorated and filled Christmas stockings, with proceeds benefiting The Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh.
The lucky winner of each player auction will not only win a beautifully decorated holiday stocking, but also stocking stuffers which reflect the individual player’s interests, hobbies or hometown. Although each stocking is different, both in filler items and decoration, the common element is that the minimum monetary value of the filler items is $75.00 and the players have included autographed Mini Sticks in their stockings.
The online auction will run from Friday, December 7 until noon on Wednesday, December 19, 2007. Once the winners of the auctions have been determined, the stockings will be shipped via UPS Ground.

Happy Holidays from the Pittsburgh Penguins!!
