The LeClair figurine was a gift from the son of West Point hockey coach
Bill Riley, who coached Malone when he played at Shattuck-St. Mary's, the famous Minnesota prep school. He's become a lucky charm.
"I think he actually looks like John LeClair. They both had that bowl (haircut)," said Malone. "If guys have gone a couple of games without a goal, they'll come over and give him a touch, whoever needs it."
"He loves the road," Malone added of this LeClair, which travels in an equipment bag.
Well that would be the first time LeClair's helped the Pens in recent memory...
