The holidays were made a little brighter for patients at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC as members of the Pittsburgh Penguins stopped by for their annual visit Wednesday.

The team, split into small groups, met with patients and their families, handing out gifts, signing autographs and posing for photos.

The holiday visit to Children’s has been a team tradition since the 1970s.
