KILBUCK TOWNSHIP  (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Penguins continued a tradition of surprising season ticket holders Monday.

Head coach Dan Bylsma and 13 players hand-delivered the tickets and one lucky family got the surprise of a lifetime.

Gary and Annette Henzler were notified that their tickets would be delivered to their home in Kilbuck Township, but they did not know which member of the Pens would be arriving.

“[I] have no idea who it’s going to be because they wouldn’t tell me. So, I couldn’t buy shirts for any specific player,” Gary Henzler said.

The deliveryman turned out to be the one of the best hockey players in the world.

Cameras clicked and video rolled as Sidney Crosby signed memorabilia for family members.

The Penguins’ superstar seems to enjoy the experience almost as much as the ticket holders.

“I think this is our fifth year doing it, and I think guys realize it’s a nice gesture. And we certainly appreciate all the support we get. So, to go to a few houses and pass out some tickets, it’s a nice thing for everyone,” Crosby said.

The couple and their two kids never expected Crosby to be the one to come to their house.

“I thought, ‘What are the chances of Sid coming to my house?’ I said, ‘Not likely.’ So, i guess I was wrong,” Annette Henzler.
