PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – As the NHL continues to wait out the coronavirus pandemic with hopes to resume the 2019-20 season, Pittsburgh Penguins coach Mike Sullivan had a powerful and inspirational message for 2020 high school and college seniors.

On the Penguins Twitter Friday morning, the organization posted a message of hope from Sullivan in his ‘Commencement Address.’

“The pride everyone has in each and every one of you will remain great today and always,” Sullivan said in the two-minute address. “And the pride you have in yourselves shouldn’t waver. You’ve truly accomplished something great.”

The official charity organization of the Penguins, the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation, offered support for graduating seniors shortly after the release of Sullivan’s address.

The NHL suspended its season on March 12.
