BLACK HISTORY MONTH

RECOGNITION

At the February 7th game against the New York Rangers, the Pittsburgh Penguins were proud to recognize Black History Month. Former Woodland Hills High School graduate Armahn Ashley sang his trademark rendition of the National Anthem while standing with the Color Guard. Arn Criswell, who began playing ice hockey with Pittsburgh ICE (Inclusion Creates Equality) and Pittsburgh Predators, and now goalie for Montour High School assumed the role of Junior Skater. Arn’s favorite hockey player is MarcAndre Fleury. To have the on-ice opportunity in CONSOL Energy Center, at a home game standing in the line-up with the Pittsburgh Penguins is a dream come true for Arn. The Pittsburgh Penguins are deeply honored to acknowledge the exceptional service of the Tuskegee Airmen and other African American veterans. Fans welcomed the veterans with standing ovations and rounds of applause for their courage, contribution, and essential role to our country. Tuskegee Airman Dr. Harry Lanauze, SSgt. Dave Lanier and Technical Sergeant Gordon Manker were saluted with distinction from the crowd while riding the Zambonis. Other veterans Spec. 4 continued on page 228
