Penguins Players are Born, Not Made

Congratulations to Ryan Malone and to his wife for giving birth to a baby boy last night. The "yet to be named" Baby Malone was mentioned numerous times on FSN Pittsburgh while his dad played against the Los Angeles Kings in the Mellon Arena on a rare 1pm puck drop.

On an energized shift, Ryan chopped at the puck that made it flip over the glove of netminder Jason LaBarbara and gave the goal-oriented Penguins a 2-0 lead in the second period. No doubt the puck was immediately swooped up and presented to the new daddy as a fitting prize.

Ryan Malone is a legacy of players dating back to his father Greg Malone who spent most of his career with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the late 70s. After his playing days were over, Greg was hired as a scout for the Penguins

It is not known weather or not the new "baby Malone" will inherit any talent or desire to play in the NHL, but I am sure that the Penguins scouting staff will be keeping an eye on him. What are the chances of a third generation of Malones to put on the #12?
