Defenseman Kris Letang
and forward Tyler Kennedy
signed autographs, posed for pictures with fans and watched the premiere of the 2009 Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins DVD at Loews Theater in the Waterfront Monday evening.
"It's really exciting to be here," Letang said. "I have a lot of great memories in my head. It's like a regroup of everything and what all the players were thinking during the playoffs."
The DVD, which officially hits stores Tuesday, relives every magical step of the Penguins’ march to the 2009 Stanley Cup, highlighted by series against Philadelphia, Washington, Carolina and a rematch victory over the Detroit Red Wings.
Under head coach Dan Bylsma, the Penguins, led by captain Sidney Crosby
and a star-studded supporting cast including Conn Smythe winner Evgeni Malkin
, Marc-Andre Fleury
and Jordan Staal
, captured the Cup for the third time in franchise history and first since 1992.
Letang and Kennedy posed with the Stanley Cup, which was on hand along with the Art Ross and Prince of Wales Trophy, and conducted interviews with media inside Lowes. Penguins fans lined up outside the theater and along a roped off area to get a glimpse of the Penguins' two young champions.
"Look at the fans, it must be good," Kennedy said. "It's a great accomplishment. We have a lot of young guys and the future is bright."
Kennedy enjoyed his day with the Cup last Friday when he took it around his hometown of Sault Ste. Marie.
"I went to my cottage and a couple of restaurants," he said. "Mostly I shared it with my family, which is huge. When I see my grandparents lifting the Cup up, it's pretty special."

Letang will be at the Donaldsons Crossroads Giant Eagle in McMurray from 12-2 p.m. Kennedy will sign at the Dick’s Sporting Goods located in The Mall at Robinson from 6-8 p.m. Fans must purchase a copy of the DVD to receive an autograph.
