From the Ducks:

Corey Perry visited FDNY’s Engine 34, Ladder 21 last night in
the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City. The station, which was
hit hard on Sept. 11, 2001, has its own pickup hockey league and
received a surprise
visit from the league’s MVP. In tribute to all members of the FDNY and
in memory of those lost on Sept. 11, 2001, Perry presented the
firefighters with a framed jersey from the Ducks organization. Perry
greeted the firefighters, signed autographs and was given
a special tour of the firehouse. The firefighters took pride in showing
Perry their personal version of the Stanley Cup (silver cooler with a
silver cup on top) after capturing a recent victory. They presented
Perry with a FDNY hat, t-shirt and patch.

 

Engine 34, Ladder 21 lost seven men on Sept. 11,
2001 in the attacks on the World Trade Center. While at the station,
Perry listened to their personal accounts and offered his thanks for
their service and dedication.
