A group of Baldwin hockey players teamed up with the Pittsburgh Penguins and former Penguin Colby Armstrong on Thursday to help special needs kids at The Pathfinder School in Bethel Park.

The Penguins posted a video about the event:

Sophomore Cameron Greenaway said several Baldwin hockey players volunteered to help with the program after their coach told them about the opportunity. At the program, the Baldwin players and players on other area high school teams assisted with the program, which gave the Pathfinder students experience playing hockey in a gym.

“It was really fun,” Greenaway said. “I enjoyed it.”

Greenaway said the high school players assisted at various stations and helped teach the Pathfinder students about hockey.

Sophomre Ross Zofcin said an additional reason he volunteered is that his dad works at the Pathfinder School.

“There will be future events. They plan on doing one every year,” Zofcin said.
