During last week’s Stadium Series game between the Penguins and Flyers, there were actual penguins on the ice as part of the pregame festivities.

Overall, the penguins were cute as they waddled around on the slippery ice, but one part wasn’t so cute. During the celebration, fireworks went off around the penguins, who were visibly startled.

PETA became aware, and sent a letter to the Penguins. Here’s part of the letter from a PETA representative, as posted on the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

It’s a play that certainly will warrant a look from the NHL’s Department of Player Safety, even though Penguins star Evgeni Malkin escaped discipline for a similar hit to the head of Jets forward Blake Wheeler on Thursday.

The league later announced Trouba would have a hearing on Monday.

Stone, 24, missed most of the preseason while recovering from a concussion. He netted a team-leading goal No. 22 on the season earlier in the game. His 47 points in 56 games are second on the team to star defenseman Erik Karlsson.

The Seantors also lost wingers Mike Hoffman and Tommy Wingels to injury during the game, hours after the team announced Bobby Ryan would be out indefinitely with a hand injury.

Without the inclusion of NHL players, though, USA Hockey said it would turn to minor league players, those in the college ranks, and some from overseas. Granato has experience working with players at each of those levels.
