This is newest Penguin Alexei Ponikarovsky, a Ukranian-born 29-year-old we acquired from the Toronto Maple Leafs last week:
This is my two-year-old niece’s reaction to seeing Alexei on a pre-game interview, his first as a Penguin:
That boy is cute. I’m going to marry him and I’m going to kiss him on the lips. [giggle]
We haven’t yet broken the news to her that he’s a married father of three.
