Pittsburgh, PA - A young Pittsburgh Penguins fan has become an internet hit.

Two-year-old Ty Avolia is getting a lot of attention for his enthusiasm for the team. He was caught on camera during a playoff game last week celebrating a goal.

His parents living room is his arena. His toy lawnmower is his zamboni, and the carpet his ice rink.

Ty also prefers people sing the national anthem before he starts playing.

His parents have taken him to four hockey games, and say his life revolves around the sport.

"We tried, we got him for Easter, we got him baseball stuff, no. He's still just interested in hockey. Everything goes back to hockey."

WTAE reports the Penguins have reached out to Ty's family with tickets to Saturday's playoff game.
