Even though the Penguins have forsaken the HBK Line, the trio of Carl Hagelin, Nick Bonino, and Phil Kessel lives on. In fact, the three players met the original Heart Break Kid, Shawn Michaels himself, for the first time on Monday.
Michaels and the HBK line were in attendance for the shearing of former Pittsburgh Steelers player Brett Keisel’s beard as a fundraiser for the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.

The trio even signed an original HBK jersey, which was available at the event.
A great meeting for an even greater cause. Now, if only the Penguins would put Hagelin, Bonino, and Kessel on a line once more.
