NHL player Dustin Penner gets stuck at grocery store, tweets fans for ride home

The Washington Capitals recently acquired Dustin Penner from the Anaheim Ducks and like any recently uprooted player, Penner needed food.

Hungry, the veteran made his way to a local grocery store but realized there was a problem – he had no ride home.

Now, the most logical idea would have been to call a cab or even car service. But apparently Penner wasn’t in the mood, so he decided to tweet that he needed a ride home and in exhcnage would give away two tickets to an upcoming game.
