Engine 34, Ladder 21 lost seven men in the attacks on the World Trade Center.
Anaheim Ducks star Corey Perry visited FDNY's Engine 34, Ladder 21 in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of New York on Wednesday as a tribute to all members of the FDNY and in memory of those lost on Sept. 11, 2001.

Engine 34, Ladder 21 lost seven men in the attacks on the World Trade Center.

During a surprise visit to the station, Perry presented the firefighters with a framed jersey and signed autographs.

The NHL's MVP also was given a special tour of the firehouse and a FDNY hat, t-shirt and patch.

The station has its own pickup hockey league, so the firefighter took pride in showing Perry their own version of the Stanley Cup, which they recently won.
