Following his Tuesday trade from the Anaheim Ducks, Washington Capitals forward Dustin Penner is already making an impression with his new fans.
Penner sent out a SOS message to his Twitter followers on Friday night, saying that he was stranded at the grocery store without a ride home. The 31-year-old begged his fans in the Twitterverse to give him a ride home in exchange for tickets to his debut game with the Capitals.[tweet https://twitter.com/Dustinpenner25/status/442075827120136192 align=”center”]
Luckily for Penner, Emilio Delgado, a self-proclaimed hockey nut and sports enthusiast (according to his Twitter bio), came to his rescue.[tweet https://twitter.com/Dustinpenner25/status/442123072158834688 align=”center”]
And Delgado did in fact receive Penner’s gift of gratitude in return.[tweet https://twitter.com/emilio_delgado/status/442449906260000768 align=”center”]
