COMMUNITY UPDATE SKATE WITH THE GREATS PRESENTED BY 84 LUMBER COMES TO CONSOL ENERGY CENTER BY: KRISTEN MANCHOR

We’re all accustomed to seeing the CONSOL Energy Center filled with fast paced hockey and top-notch fans, but how about seeing those fans down on the ice? Supporters had a chance to share the ice with Penguins Alumni members during the third annual Penguins Alumni Skate with the Greats presented by 84 Lumber on January 13. Fans also had the opportunity to take part in two autograph sessions and purchase mystery autographed pucks sold by the alumni wives. That evening, 600 fans enjoyed the opportunity to skate on the same ice the Pittsburgh Penguins call home. Penguins’ Director of Community and Alumni Relations Cindy Himes said, “It’s the first time we’ve ever held this event at CONSOL Energy Center and the fans seem to be having a blast!” Alumni in attendance included Mark Recchi, Bryan Trottier, Jay Caufield, Troy Loney, Warren Young , Kim Clackson, Randy Hillier, Mark Kachowski, Ed Johnston, Phil Bourque, Duane Rupp, Pierre Larouche, Francois Leroux, Peter Taglianetti, Greg Malone, Dave Hannan, and honorary Penguins alumnus Dave Hanson. Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma made an appearance, as well as assistant coaches Tony Granato and Todd Reirden. Paul Steigerwald served as event emcee. continued on page 26
