The Elite Women’s 3-on-3 game was one of the highlights of the 2020 All-Star Weekend, with the best of USA and Canada facing off against each other. But before the rivalry and ramped up, the camaraderie and respect between all players were on full display.
As the women’s teams took the ice to warm up for their game, they exchanged hellos, hugs, and shoulder-bumps with the NHL players.
Penguins’ defenseman Kris Letang’s son Alex was on the ice watching the Skills Competition, and Kris took the opportunity to ask for the photo of a lifetime. Marie-Philip Poulin, whose illustrious resume includes two Olympic gold medals, was happy to pose for a picture with little Letang.
