Season Ticket Holder

SPOTLIGHT

With whom do you attend Penguins home games? My wife and our newborn daughter What is your earliest memory of Penguins hockey? I can remember being very young and my favorite part of the game was between periods when they would cut the ice. The Zambonis back then had a belt on top that would carry the ice up. That was always the best part when I was very little.

Penguins Season Ticket Holder

What motivated you to become a season ticket holder? My parents were season ticket holders and once I could afford it I immediately got on the waiting list. We have always been huge Penguins fans. There was simply no question of whether or not I would become a season ticket holder. What lesser known Penguins player (past or present) has left a lasting impression on you? What did he do to make that impression? I’ve always liked Zarley Zalapski, I Penguins Family! John Wink, Barbara Wink, Jeff Wink, Tiffany Wink, Morgan Wink, and Brian Wink. think mostly because of his name. I have an uncommon last name so I related to him because of his. My all-time favorite Penguins player is Paul Coffey because I played hockey growing up, and I was a defenseman. What is the most unique keepsake in your personal collection of Penguins memorabilia? I have a Craig Simpson signed picture where he spelled my name wrong. He put brain. Not exactly Penguins, but I have a continued on page 15

Mike Gartner signed stick. I got the stick during the 1990 All-Star skills competition. I would have been seven-years-old then. At the time, my dad’s seats were near the opposing team locker room, so we brought the stick to the next Rangers’ game and the usher took it back to have it signed for me. What has been your favorite off-ice Penguins event to attend and why? Snapshots with Stanley was pretty great this year. We got to put our newborn baby in the Cup which was special. What is your favorite memory from the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoff run? I think seeing Phil Kessel win was something great to watch. I personally thought we would be unstoppable with him on our team from the start, and when we didn’t win immediately it was pretty disappointing. When the team started to click and Phil started to really shine, it was great. In your eyes, what makes the Pittsburgh Penguins, or hockey in general, great? I love hockey. I watch as many games as I can regardless of the teams playing. Obviously growing up in Pittsburgh I have always been a Penguins fan, and to me it’s always been a great organization. I’ve never had a bad game experience, and I don’t know how I could. As long as hockey is being played, I will most likely be happy.

Morgan’s first Penguins game!

MARIO LEMIEUX Co-Owner/Chairman

Mario Lemieux, one of the most respected figures in the National Hockey League, added a new line to his Hall of Fame career last season: Two-time champion owner. The Penguins claimed the Cup for the second time since Lemieux and partner Ron Burkle bought the team out of bankruptcy in 1999. It gave him four Stanley Cups overall, including two as a player in 1991 and 1992. Under the leadership of Lemieux and co-owner Ron Burkle, the Penguins have become one of the premier franchises in the NHL and in all of sports, leading the way in fan relations, youth marketing, community outreach and innovative technology while consistently putting a winning product on the ice – including 10 straight playoff appearances and four conference final appearances in the past nine seasons, in addition to the two Cups. The Penguins entered the 2016-17 season having sold out every game for nineplus seasons while setting new standards for television ratings, corporate sales and social media. Lemieux and Burkle were driving forces in the quest for a new multi-purpose arena for Pittsburgh and were proud to open the arena in August, 2010. The facility is rated one of the top facilities in North America. Known as “Le Magnifique,” Lemieux was one of the greatest players in NHL history from 1984-97 and 2000-06, winning six league scoring titles, three MVP awards and two Conn Smythe Trophies in addition to two Stanley Cups. A gifted 6-foot-4 centerman, he dominated play for parts of three decades despite a relentless series of medical setbacks, including multiple back surgeries and a battle with Hodgkin’s disease. He retired in 2006 as the No. 7 all-time scorer in NHL history with 1,723 points. He also ranked eighth all-time in goals (690) and 10th in assists (1,033). After retiring as a player in 1997, he put together an ownership group to buy the Penguins out of bankruptcy in September, 1999 and then returned to the ice on Dec. 27, 2000 — becoming the first player-owner of the modern era. In addition to his legendary hockey accomplishments, he continues to oversee the Mario Lemieux Foundation for cancer research and neo-natal research and hosts its annual celebrity golf tournament, which has raised more than $9 million for charity. More information is available at mariolemieux.org. The Penguins ownership group, local labor organizations and members of the Pittsburgh business community honored Lemieux in 2012 with a statue to commemorate his career and contributions to the city and the region. Appropriately named “Le Magnifique,” the statue, by nationally-acclaimed sculptor Bruce Wolfe, can be seen outside of PPG Paints Arena. For full bio, please visit pittsburghpenguins.com.

RON BURKLE Co-Owner

Ron Burkle, one of the preeminent investors in retail, manufacturing, technology and distribution industries, is in his 18th season as co-owner of the Penguins. He teamed with Mario Lemieux to buy the team out of bankruptcy in September, 1999, and together they have become one of the outstanding ownership tandems in professional sports, leading the team to Stanley Cup championships in 2009 and 2016. Among Burkle’s many significant contributions to the Penguins was his essential role in negotiations for a new arena. PPG Paints Arena is considered one of the finest indoor facilities in North America and has attracted many national-level events to Pittsburgh, including NCAA basketball and hockey. Under the leadership of Lemieux and Burkle, the Penguins have sold out every game for nine-plus seasons and consistently ranked among the most fan-friendly and community-minded teams in the NHL and all of pro sports. The Penguins have earned 10 straight playoff berths and reached the conference finals four times in the past nine years, in addition to the two Stanley Cups. The team’s solid foundation of ownership has enabled hockey management to spend to the salary cap, sign many of the team’s core players to long-term contracts and put a competitive team on the ice year after year. Burkle founded the Yucaipa Companies in 1986 and has served as Chairman of the Board and controlling shareholder of numerous companies, including Alliance Entertainment, Golden State Foods, Dominick’s, Fred Meyer, Ralphs and Food4Less. Ron is Co-Chairman of the Burkle Center for International Relations at UCLA and is broadly involved in the community. He is a trustee of the Carter Center, the National Urban League, Frank Lloyd Wright Conservancy and AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA). Ron was the Founder and Chairman of the Ralph’s/Food4Less Foundation and the Fred Meyer Inc. Foundation. He was a member of the board of Occidental Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: OXY), KB Home (NYSE: KBH), Kaufman & Broad S.A. (Euronext: KOF), Yahoo! (Nasdaq: YHOO), the J. Paul Getty Trust, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Music Center and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. He has received numerous honors and awards, including the AFL-CIO’s Murray Green Meany Kirkland Community Service Award, the Los Angeles County Federation Man of the Year, the Los Angeles County Boy Scouts Jimmy Stewart Person of the Year Award and the APLA Commitment to Life Award.

DAVID MOREHOUSE Chief Executive Officer & President

David Morehouse is Chief Executive Officer and President of the Stanley Cupchampion Penguins, overseeing all aspects of the team’s operation. The Penguins have become one of the NHL’s strongest business entities during his tenure — selling out every game for nine-plus seasons, setting new standards for television ratings and corporate sales and increasing their focus on innovative youth marketing. Morehouse joined the team as consultant on the new arena project in 2004 and was named team president in April 2007. He was given the additional responsibilities of Chief Executive Officer just as the new arena was opening in August 2010. Under his leadership, the Penguins have reshaped their strategic vision with an emphasis on branding, fan relations, community interaction, corporate outreach and cutting-edge technology, while maintaining a high level of performance on the ice. A strong commitment to fan outreach includes an annual event where players personally deliver season tickets to fans’ homes and a special preseason game were all 18,000 tickets are distributed free to local youth. Morehouse also was a driving force behind the new UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex, which opened in August 2015. It is the first facility to combine hockey with a world-class medical center and sports performance complex. Morehouse joined the Penguins following a career in national politics that included stints at the White House, Pentagon and on Capitol Hill — as well as key roles in two Presidential campaigns. He attended the Community College of Allegheny County and Duquesne University and received a master’s degree in Public Administration from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. He is a native of the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Beechview.

JIM RUTHERFORD Executive Vice President & General Manager

Jim Rutherford enters his third year as Penguins executive vice president and general manager fresh off the greatest season of his managerial career. During the course of the 2015-16 campaign, Rutherford transformed the Penguins into Stanley Cup champions, thanks in large part to his acquisitions of Phil Kessel, Nick Bonino, Trevor Daley and Carl Hagelin, plus the promotion of Mike Sullivan to head coach in December of 2015. When the Penguins defeated the San Jose Sharks to win the franchise’s fourth Stanley Cup on June 12, 2016, Rutherford became the first GM in the post-1967 Expansion Era to manage multiple teams to Cup victories, having also done so with Carolina in 2006. As a reward for quick, on-the-fly re-shaping of the Penguins’ roster, Rutherford won the NHL General Manager of the Year Award for his work in ’15-16. Rutherford spent the previous 20 years as GM of the Carolina Hurricanes/ Hartford Whalers franchise from 1994-2014, where he was a key architect of the Hurricanes’ 2006 Stanley Cup championship squad and their 2002 Stanley Cup finalist team. In addition to his general manager duties, he also served 20 years as president of Carolina/Hartford, taking the post in 1994. In his role as president/GM, Rutherford oversaw operations on both the hockey and business sides of the organization. Over the course of his executive career, Rutherford has won multiple awards, including The Hockey News‘ Executive of the Year in 2002 and ’06. Additionally, he was voted by his NHL general management peers as Sporting News ‘Executive of the Year’ in 2006. Before his 22 years in the NHL, Rutherford was recognized as the 1987 Canadian Hockey League (CHL) Executive of the Year, and the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Executive of the Year in back-to-back years with the Windsor Spitfires in 1987 and ’88. He oversaw a Spitfires team that won the OHL championship in 1988 and earned a berth in the Memorial Cup. Rutherford played 13 years as a goaltender in the NHL, appearing in 457 career NHL games with Pittsburgh, Toronto, Los Angeles and Detroit. He was selected by the Detroit Red Wings in the first round (10th overall) of the 1969 NHL Draft. For full bio, please visit pittsburghpenguins.com.

JASON BOTTERILL Associate General Manager

Jason Botterill enters this third season as associate general manager having assisted GM Jim Rutherford in making numerous personnel moves over the last year that resulted in the Penguins winning the Stanley Cup in 2016, the second championship Botterill has helped build during his tenure in Pittsburgh. As associate GM, Botterill advises Rutherford on all hockey-related matters, including scouting, player development and contract negotiations. During the summer of 2015, Botterill played a leading role in hiring Mike Sullivan as head coach of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League. Following a hot start to the season with WB/S, Sullivan was eventually promoted to Pittsburgh and helped guide the Penguins to the Stanley Cup victory. In addition to his duties in Pittsburgh, Botterill serves as the GM of WB/S, which has made the playoffs all seven years he has overseen the team, including back-to-back berths in the Eastern Conference Final in 2013 and ‘14. Prior to his promotion, Botterill spent the previous five years as the Penguins assistant GM from 2009-14, and the two years prior to that as the team’s director of hockey administration beginning in 2007-08 where he was a key architect of the Penguins’ 2009 Stanley Cup championship team. Botterill was drafted by the Dallas Stars in the first round (20th overall) in 1994 NHL Draft and played in 88 NHL games for Dallas, Atlanta, Calgary and Buffalo before his career was cut short due to injury. He also suited up for 393 career minor-league games in the American and International Hockey Leagues, tallying 257 career points. A native of Edmonton who grew up in Winnipeg, Botterill played four years of college hockey at the University of Michigan and helped lead the Wolverines to an NCAA title in 1996. Botterill represented Canada in three straight World Junior Championships from 1994-96, winning gold medals all three years. Following his playing career, he received his MBA from his alma mater, the University of Michigan.

BILL GUERIN Assistant General Manager

Bill Guerin capped his second season as the Penguins assistant general manager by earning the first Stanley Cup championship of his executive career in 2015-16. Guerin’s responsibilities as assistant general manager include serving as a liaison between the players and management. Guerin was Pittsburgh’s player development coach from 2011-14, where he was instrumental in helping develop the Penguins’ minor league, junior and college prospects, including Tom Kuhnhackl, Bryan Rust and Conor Sheary, who all played huge roles in the 2016 championship run. Originally drafted by New Jersey in the first round (5th overall) of the 1989 NHL Draft, Guerin won two Stanley Cups (Pittsburgh, 2009; New Jersey, 1995) and spent 18 seasons in the NHL — including his final two with the Penguins. Guerin’s leadership and on-ice performance after being acquired at the NHL trade deadline was a key in Pittsburgh’s ’09 title. Guerin, a four-time NHL All-Star, tallied 429 career goals and 856 points in 1,263 career NHL games, including five 30-goal and two 40-goal seasons. He was elected to the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame in 2013.

Before joining Pittsburgh, Karmanos spent 15 years as an executive for the Carolina Hurricanes from 1998-2013, serving various roles with Carolina, including executive director of hockey operations and vice president/assistant general manager under Rutherford. Karmanos played four years of college hockey at Harvard University from 1992-96, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors. In 1994, Karmanos represented Team USA at the World Junior Championships, compiling three points (1G-2A) in seven games.

MIKE SULLIVAN Head Coach

Mike Sullivan led the Penguins to one of the greatest in-season turnarounds in franchise history during his first year as head coach in 2015-16, a journey that resulted in a Stanley Cup victory against the San Jose Sharks on June 12, 2016. Adhering to Sullivan’s advice to ‘Just Play’, the Penguins ended the regular season with the secondbest record in the Eastern Conference and fourth-best mark in the league, in large part because of a 14-2 run to conclude the regular season. By leading the Penguins to the franchise’s fourth Cup, Sullivan became just the sixth American-born head coach to win the Stanley Cup. Prior to being promoted to Pittsburgh, Sullivan spent the first two-plus months of the 2015-16 season as the head coach of the Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins. During his 23-game tenure in WB/S, his club went 18-5, which was good enough for first place in the Atlantic Division. Sullivan’s club also had a franchise-best 11-game winning streak. A native of Marshfield, Massachusetts, Sullivan began his coaching career in 2002-03, starting the season as head coach of the AHL’s Providence Bruins before joining the NHL’s Bruins as an assistant coach late in the year. He was promoted to head coach of the NHL Bruins at age 35 in 2003-04, winning a Northeast Division crown in the first of his two years at the helm. Sullivan served as an NHL assistant coach for seven-consecutive years from 2007-14 with Tampa Bay, the NY Rangers and Vancouver. In addition to his professional coaching experience, Sullivan has coached the United States three times internationally, including the 2016 World Cup of Hockey when he was an assistant coach. He was the head coach at the 2007 World Championship and an assistant coach at the 2006 Olympic Games in Turino, Italy. During the 2014-15 season, Sullivan was a member of the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks player development staff. Sullivan’s 11-year NHL career began with the expansion San Jose Sharks in 1991-92 and included stops in Calgary, Boston and Arizona. Sullivan played four years of collegiate hockey at Boston University from 1986-90, serving as the Terriers captain as a senior. Sullivan represented the U.S. as a player at the 1988 World Junior Championship. For full bio, please visit pittsburghpenguins.com.

RICK TOCCHET Assistant Coach

Rick Tocchet is in his third season as an assistant coach of the Penguins. In his current role, Tocchet works closely with the team’s speedy and dynamic forward group, which had eight players reach double figures in points during the 2016 playoffs, a key reason Pittsburgh was able to win the franchise’s fourth Stanley Cup, the first Cup win of Tocchet’s coaching career. Tocchet was hired as an assistant coach by Tampa Bay in July 2008 and was elevated to interim head coach on Nov. 14 of that year. He was named head coach following the ‘08-09 season, where he remained in that position until 2010. Tocchet began his coaching career as an assistant with the Colorado Avalanche for two years (2002-04) before spending one season (‘05-06) with the Phoenix Coyotes. A veteran of 18 NHL seasons, including parts of three seasons with the Penguins from 1992-94, Tocchet won a Stanley Cup championship with Pittsburgh in 1992. The four-time NHL All-Star (1989, ‘90, ‘91, ‘93) played 1,144 career NHL games and totaled 440 goals, 952 points and 2,972 penalty minutes in his NHL career. Tocchet was originally drafted by Philadelphia in the sixth round (125th overall) of the 1983 NHL Draft.

JACQUES MARTIN Assistant Coach

Jacques Martin stepped back behind the Penguins’ bench for a second tour of duty as an assistant coach in December 2015, playing a crucial role in the team’s Stanley Cup win, the first championship of Martin’s lengthy NHL career. Martin, who enters his fourth season in the Pittsburgh organization, presides over the Penguins’ defensemen and penalty killing unit in his current role. He was instrumental in Kris Letang hitting career highs in all offensive categories in 2015-16. Martin’s PK unit finished with the fifth-best success rate in the NHL. Martin has over 25 years of NHL experience as a general manager, head coach and assistant coach with Pittsburgh, Montreal, Florida, Ottawa, Colorado/Quebec, Chicago and St. Louis. He won 613 games and made 12 playoff appearances in 17 seasons as an NHL head coach. He won the Jack Adams Award as the NHL’s ‘most outstanding coach’ with Ottawa in 1999 and was a finalist for the award on three other occasions. Martin won gold medals as an assistant coach for Team Canada at the 2002 Olympics and the 2004 World Cup of Hockey. He was also an assistant coach on the 2006 Canadian Olympic Team.

MIKE BALES Goaltending Coach Mike Bales has established himself as one of the NHL’s top goaltending coaches during his first three seasons with the team. During the Penguins’ 2016 Stanley Cup championship drive, Pittsburgh used three goaltenders who thrived under his tutelage, including rookie Matt Murray, whose 15 playoff wins equaled the NHL rookie record. Under Bales’ guidance, Marc-Andre Fleury has compiled two of the finest seasons of his career. During the 2014-15 campaign, Fleury established a franchise record with 10 shutouts, a figure that led the entire NHL. Bales began his Penguins’ career as the team’s goaltending development coach from 2011-13. Bales, a native of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, spent 18 seasons playing professionally from 1992-2010, including stints in the NHL with Boston and Ottawa. Bales also saw action with teams in the AHL, IHL, Germany, Sweden and Northern Ireland. He was drafted by the Boston Bruins in the fifth round (105th overall) of the 1990 NHL Draft. Before turning pro, Bales played three collegiate seasons with Ohio State University of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) from 1989-92.

PENGUINS IN THE CLASSROOM …

TEACHING STEAM!

Chartiers Valley Middle School

Chartiers Valley Middle School’s STEAM classroom kicked off the school year with the Penguin’s Future Goals — Hockey Scholar program for a unit on how math intersects with the real world.  Students greatly enjoyed the interactive simulations and game-like environment in which these lessons are taught.  One student said, “I enjoy math.  I enjoy hockey.  It’s nice to see them used together in real life!” Many of the students are avid Penguins fans and this program has built off of that passion to make learning fun. Teachers enjoy the fact that lessons can be self-paced, allowing students who are advanced to go at a faster pace and students who need more time to move without being rushed.  The review exams at the end of each section also give students immediate feedback on their learning progress. “I love how Future Goals makes real life connections to show us how math is used in real life settings all over the world,” said another STEAM class student. Hockey Scholar is a digital resource that provides students an opportunity to experience different aspects of hockey while immersing themselves in problem solving situations involving engineering, math and science. If you’re a 5th-8th grade teacher, learn how to bring Future Goals to your classroom by visiting futuregoals.nhl.com/penguins!

PENGUINS CUP

PLAYOFFS PICTURE

The PIHL (Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League) is wrapping up its 17th year as Western PA’s premier high school hockey league, and local high school teams are making the final push for a chance to clinch a spot in the Penguins Cup Playoffs. Over 50 high school teams in four separate divisions hope to have the opportunity to extend their seasons into the Penguins Cup Playoffs. Winners of the Penguins Cup also receive the opportunity to represent their division in the Pennsylvania Cup Finals where Western PA and Eastern PA teams clash for the title of State Champions. Heading into February, Varsity AAA is led by powerhouse duo Central Catholic (28 Points) and North Allegheny (24 Points) while Cathedral Prep (21 Points) and Peters Township (20 Points) sit within striking distance to steal the number two seed from North Allegheny. Seneca Valley (19 Points) holds the fifth place in the Varsity AAA standings and has a comfortable position heading into the playoffs. The last three playoff seeds are held by Canon-McMillan, Bethel Park, and Butler who each have 15 points in the standings. Pine Richland also has the chance to grab the final playoff spot as they are only one point out of the playoff picture. Varsity AA is split up into two conferences where the top five seeds from each conference qualify for the Penguins Cup Playoffs. Plum and Hampton sit atop Varsity AA East with Greater Latrobe, Shaler, and Hempfield filling the other three playoff spots. However, do not count out Penn-Trafford as they currently sit only three points out of playoff contention with games in hand. The standings of Varsity AA are more wide open as Moon, Mt. Lebanon, and Quaker Valley have commanding leads on the top three spots with less games played than the rest of the conference. North Hills, Bishop Canevin, and Mars are locked in a tight race for the final two spots where each team has games left to play. Varsity A and Varsity D2 each have teams running away with their respective divisions. In Varsity A, Franklin Regional and Indiana are the teams to beat heading into the playoffs. Meadville currently sits on top in Varsity D2 but Carrick, Kennedy Catholic, and Burrell have an opportunity to take home the cup as well.

Penguins Profile:

PHIL KESSEL

Mark Madden

Phil Kessel played in his 800th NHL game when the host Penguins defeated Columbus, 4-3 in overtime, Feb. 3. Kessel learned about the milestone from the PPG Paints Arena HD scoreboard, same as everybody else in attendance. “I didn’t even know until they announced it on the board,” the 6-foot, 202-pound right wing said. “It’s a lot of games, and hopefully I can have a bunch more.” A bunch more like that night’s game would be nice. Kessel’s power-play goal 3:15 into overtime accounted for the evening’s winning margin. The goal was Kessel’s second of the evening, and third in three games. Kessel’s three-point night gave him 50 points (17 goals and 33 assists) in 50 games. Kessel, 29, was the first member of the NHL’s 2006 draft class to play 800 NHL games. The Wisconsin native hasn’t missed a regular-season game since 2009-10. Kessel is on pace to tie his career high of 82 points. But his goals were down a bit, so coach Mike Sullivan was happy that Kessel netted twice vs. Columbus. “It’s great for him,” Sullivan said after Kessel’s OT winner. “I think he’s making a concentrated effort to play in all the areas of the game that were challenging him. To see him get rewarded tonight is terrific.” Kessel has played well, and had his share of chances. But between poor luck and a few misfires, the net hadn’t been bulging as much. “They’ve got to go in eventually, right?” Kessel said after defeating the Blue Jackets. “It feels good. All year long I’ve been seeing things all right. I’m just kind of staying the course.” Sooner or later, that results in goals. Kessel scored 26 times in 82 games last season, and then followed that with 10 goals in 24 playoff games as the Penguins won the Stanley Cup. Kessel scored 30 or more goals five times in 10 prior NHL seasons. But he scores with even more frequency in the postseason: 23 goals in 46 career NHL playoff games. It’s all about Kessel’s shot, which defies description, but here goes: The wrists roll, the stick whips, his skating tacks on extra velocity, his accuracy continued on page 79

is uncanny, he almost never uses a one-timer or slap shot and often shoots off the wrong foot. His stick breaks a lot, too. When asked if his stick might have too much flex, Kessel once said, “You don’t tell a carpenter what tools to use.” That’s right. Not when you get the results Kessel does. “He shoots the puck different than most,” Sullivan marveled. “That’s one of the things that most separates Phil from other players. He can really shoot the puck, and when he gets in those scoring area, he’s dangerous. “He doesn’t need too many opportunities. He’s that dangerous when he shoots the puck.” Kessel’s game-winner against Columbus came on that game’s first and only power play: The Blue Jackets’ Cam Atkinson hooked Sidney Crosby as the Penguins captain drove to the net. Kessel’s goal salvaged the extra point on a night when the Penguins squandered a 3-1 third-period lead. Kessel punched in a loose puck from the bottom of the right circle after Kris Letang’s shot was blocked. “Power plays and penalty kills are normally important,” Kessel said. “But tonight there weren’t any. “It’s a big win. Obviously, we were up 3-1 and you never want to let them come back. But we kept fighting and we got the win.” Kessel came up a bit short in this past November’s U.S. presidential election. “Phil for President” T-shirts were briefly in vogue around the Penguins’ locker room. The campaign slogan: “Nice guy, tries hard, loves the game.” Between Allegheny and Westmoreland counties, Kessel got 53 write-in votes. That’s equal parts disturbing and hilarious. Mark Madden hosts a radio show 3-6 p.m. weekdays on WXDX-FM (105.9).

Darius Kasparaitis is a Russian native who made his NHL debut in 1992 with the New York Islanders after they drafted him fifth overall that year. He was traded to the Penguins in 1996 and spent six seasons in Pittsburgh. Kasparaitis was known for his aggressive physical playing style, leading his teams in hits many times, and the rugged defenseman was a fan favorite because of it. His biggest moment with the team was scoring the overtime winner in Game Seven of the 2001 Eastern Conference semifinals against Buffalo, complete with a joyful sliding celebration. 95

In 2015, the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation and the Allegheny Intermediate Unit introduced the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation (PFF) STEAM Lending Library to schools districts in Allegheny County. This oneof-a-kind, first in the nation, program has given students the opportunity to explore technology that they may have never had access to otherwise. Stressing the importance of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math) learning in the region, the Library gives teachers the opportunity to borrow technology to use in their classrooms. The PPF STEAM Lending Library contains nearly 1,000 items, and to date, has impacted educators from 40 schools districts in Allegheny County.

Entering its third year, Tablets in Education has provided elementary students in 11 counties the opportunity to enhance their education through technology. Since its inception in 2014, the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation has donated over 3,900 Kindle Fire tablets to over 200 school districts and special needs programs in the region; impacting over 100,000 students. Along with the support from the Allegheny Intermediate Unit, Tablets in Education continues to change the way students in our region learn.

MIKE LANGE Penguins Radio Network Play-by-Play Announcer

One of the most unique broadcasters in professional sports, Mike Lange is calling games in his 42nd season with the Penguins, handling radio play-by-play on the club’s flagship station, 105.9 FM The X and the Penguins Radio Network. Known for his creative and colorful style, including trademark phrases such as “Buy Sam A Drink And Get His Dog One, Too,” Lange was awarded the Foster Hewitt award by the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2001. Lange’s relationship with the Penguins began in 1974-75, when he broke into the NHL as a radio play-by-play man. He left for one season, but returned in 1976-77 and has been a fixture on the Penguins’ scene ever since. Lange did radio exclusively until 1979, when games were simulcast on radio and TV. He served as the television voice of the Penguins through 2005-06, before returning to the radio booth in 2006-07. A native of Sacramento, California, Lange earned a degree in broadcasting from Sacramento State University before starting his career as the voice of the Phoenix Roadrunners (WHL) in 1970. He also served as the play-by-play voice of the San Diego Gulls (WHL) in 1973-74 before joining the Penguins. In addition to his tenure with the Penguins, Lange handled play-by-play duties for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1986-87. A well-known member of the Pittsburgh community, Lange makes numerous personal appearances throughout the year and is actively involved in charity work.

PHIL BOURQUE Penguins Radio Network Color Analyst

Two-time Stanley Cup Champion Phil Bourque is in his 14th season on the Penguins broadcast team, serving as color commentator alongside Mike Lange. A gritty winger/defenseman, Bourque was signed by Pittsburgh as a free agent in 1982, and went on to record 164 points (75G-89A) in 344 regular-season games with the Penguins between 1983 and 1992. For his career he totaled 199 points (88G-111A) in 477 games with the Penguins, New York Rangers and Ottawa. Since retiring from professional hockey in 2000, Bourque has co-hosted Penguins pre- and post-game shows on the Penguins Radio Network and worked as a contributor for ROOT SPORTS’ coverage of Penguins hockey. 111


JOSH GETZOFF Radio Broadcast Host and PensTV Host

Josh Getzoff is in his second season as a radio broadcast host and PensTV host with the Pittsburgh Penguins. He joins the Penguins after spending the previous two years as the sports director for FOX Champaign in Champaign, Illinois. While in Champaign, Getzoff covered the University of Illinois and Big Ten athletics, local high school athletics, and various professional teams in the region. In June of 2015, he was named the Television Sportscaster of the Year by the Illinois Broadcasters Association. In addition to his time in Illinois, Getzoff has also worked as a sports anchor/reporter at WENY-TV and radio update anchor at 1410 WELM ESPN Radio in Elmira, New York, and served as a member of the on-site production team during NBC’s coverage of Men’s and Women’s Ice Hockey at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia.

HOCKEY ETIQUETTE 101 Our goal? To create an awesome game experience for all fans! Help make that happen by remembering the following: 1.

DO NOT ENTER OR EXIT THE SEATING AREA DURING PLAY! Hockey is fast — and goals can be missed in an instant. Fans moving through rows and up aisles can block the view of an entire seating area. Wait until the whistle blows to make your move. HINT #1: The red light above the penalty boxes is lit for TV timeouts. TV timeouts occur at the first whistle stops inside the 14:00, 10:00, and 6:00 minute mark of each period, EXCEPT following an icing call or goal. When the light comes on, this is your chance to make a dash to the restroom or your seats! HINT #2: The concourse TVs feature a countdown clock during the intermissions. Smart, huh? Thank the season ticket holders for recommending this awesome idea!

2.

NO LEANING! We know you are into the game, but leaning creates a ripple effect, affecting the view of the fans in the rows behind you. Sit back so all can enjoy the game!

3.

Keep your eyes on the puck! Pucks can hurt when they enter the seating area!

4.

PPG Paints Arena is a non-smoking facility; smoking of any kind, including e-cigarettes, is prohibited.

5.

It’s hard to like fans of the opposing team, we get it. However, we think it is pretty cool that they chose to come to our building. Be aware of children sitting around you and let the guys on the ice do the talking!

6.

Cheer, clap and let the players know you are here! Hockey is the best sport to watch live — have fun!

Since 2012, the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation and Highmark have partnered to build a total of 12 dek hockey rinks for local communities through their unique Project Power Play program. Project Power Play is a $2.3 million initiative that was designed to build one dozen dek rinks in Pittsburgh and the surrounding communities over a four-year period. To support the program, Highmark provided $1.5 million in funding. The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation also provided funding for the project. The City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County and surrounding communities provided the land as well as maintenance services, lighting and additional support. The rinks are multi-purpose courts and are suitable for hockey and other sports; including, soccer and lacrosse. All rink sites were chosen based on a community’s need for this type of facility and a local commitment to develop youth programming. Citiparks and local athletic associations continue to program the rinks, with the assistance from the Penguins organization.

To learn more and to help support Project Power Play and other Foundation programs, visit our website pittsburghpenguinsfoundation.org to make a donation.

BUILDING

A FOUNDATION Mike Prisuta

The Penguins aren’t playoff-ready yet, of that much they’re aware. But they’re getting there. Their first set of back-to-back games after the All-Star break provided the type of challenges and tests that will have to be met and passed repeatedly in the postseason. The Penguins’ 4-3 overtime victory on Feb. 3 against Columbus and their 4-1 win on Feb. 4 at St. Louis demonstrated their appreciation for such circumstances and their ability to respond accordingly. One of the tricks the rest of the way will be mastering the ability to repeat as necessary. “I thought it was two hard fought games,” head coach Mike Sullivan assessed of the weekend. “I thought we played the game the right way. We took what the 164


game gave us, but we didn’t beat ourselves with mismanagement of the puck in the wrong areas or undisciplined penalties or things of that nature. We were locked in as far as our attention to detail. “Those are two pretty good hockey teams that play a hard game. There’s not a lot of room out there. I thought our guys did a real good job.” The Penguins did a good job against the Blue Jackets and a better job against the Blues in areas of their game Sullivan and the coaching staff will continue to emphasize between now and playoff time. Limiting scoring chances against is at or near the top of that list. Doing so against Columbus and St. Louis allowed the Penguins to establish a foundation upon which they can continue to build leading up to postseason play. “That’s where I know our team can improve and get better at, just becoming a more difficult team to play against,” Sullivan continued. “A lot of times it starts with our management with the puck and just making sure we make good decisions and we don’t give teams easy opportunities or oddman rushes where they get Grade-A chances. “I know this team is talented and will score goals. For us to become the type of team we want to be, and that’s a playoff-ready team, a playoff-type continued on page 167

team, it’s being harder to play against and that starts with our decisionmaking with the puck and it’s our commitment away from the puck when we don’t have it.” The Penguins tested themselves in that area in competitive, combative confrontations against the Blue Jackets and the Blues. And they got better from one game to the next. In the Columbus game, “For the most part I thought we did a pretty good job,” Sullivan said. “There were a few times where I thought we could have made harder plays at the [bluelines] and it cost us. We gave up a 2-on-0 there one time just not being diligent in that area of the rink. “But I thought overall, to a man, our guys competed hard. It had a playoff feel to it.” In St. Louis, “I thought we were very solid defensively,” defenseman Ian Cole said. “They had some chances, but I thought we limited them pretty well.” Sullivan would like to see that become a habit between now and the end of the regular season. The same might also be said of the good start the Penguins got off to in St. Louis, something they haven’t always been able to do this season and something they’ll want to do much more often than not in the postseason. “Our start gave us some momentum,” captain Sidney Crosby said. “They’re a tough team, they don’t give you a lot of time and space. The fact we were able to get the lead allowed us to get to our game a little bit more. “It was great to get a good start.” Another encouraging sign was the Penguins’ ability to do so on the second of back-to-back assignments. “I think it was knowing the situation, pretty intense, emotional game [the night before against Columbus] so I think you know coming in you might not be as fresh as you want to be,” Crosby continued. “You just gotta make a concerted effort to play good defensively. “We want to make sure we’re solid defensively and give ourselves a chance that way, too. ‘

RATE

Larissa Zeli was a 20-year-old nursing student when her abnormally high heart rate sent her to the emergency department one evening in 2008. After visiting a cardiologist, she learned she had inappropriate sinus tachycardia, or an abnormally high resting heart rate. Larissa had two unsuccessful cardiac ablation procedures — which use heat or cold to safely destroy the tissue that causes an irregular heartbeat — and spent a few years trying different medicines to control her heart rate with little success. She continued to have symptoms and struggled with the fatigue and other side effects that came with her medicines. A coworker suggested that Larissa see Samir Saba, MD, director of cardiac electrophysiology at the UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute. Dr. Saba and his team performed a third and finally successful ablation, and she enjoyed a few years without symptoms. In 2015, while training for a half-marathon, Larissa noticed that her heart rate wouldn’t get as high as it should have during exercise. After a stress test, Dr. Saba told Larissa she had chronotropic incompetence, a condition in which the heart cannot beat faster during activity. She needed a pacemaker, a small, implanted device that would stimulate her heart muscle to help it beat faster during exercise. Larissa underwent a successful implant procedure with Dr. Saba in February 2016. Three months later, she competed in Pittsburgh’s half-marathon, beating her previous race times despite having to walk a bit of the way. “I feel better than ever,” Larissa says. “I’m so grateful to Dr. Saba and his team for all they’ve done for me.” Today, Larissa is a nurse practitioner in same-day surgery at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC and volunteers with the American Heart Association to raise awareness about heart problems in people of all ages.

DEFENDING CHAMPS

PASS ANOTHER TEST Jason Seidling Midway through the first week of February, with roughly 30-some odd games left on the Penguins’ regular-season slate, the playoff picture in the Metropolitan Division is becoming increasingly clear. To get through the division for a second-straight year, the Penguins are most likely going to have to skate through the Columbus Blue Jackets and/or Washington Capitals in the first two rounds of the postseason. Past precedent indicates that the Penguins should like their chances in such a scenario. After all, they did knock out the Capitals last spring for the eighth time in nine all-time postseason meetings, and Pittsburgh disposed of Columbus in six games in the teams’ only previous playoff encounter in 2014. But this is a new year. Not only is it a new year, but the Capitals and Blue Jackets are new teams. In addition to having two of the NHL’s top-three records, the Caps and Jackets play a heavy, physical brand of punishing hockey. Which is different than the style the Penguins like to play — fast, tenacious and did we mention fast? Last spring, that style worked wonders for the Penguins, as the team literally skated circles around the opposition at times on the way to a Stanley Cup championship.

But like all great teams, the Penguins will have to adapt when the situation calls for it, and finding a way to grind out victories when the opposition elects to use physicality to slow down Pittsburgh’s speed game is one way the Penguins will have to adjust. Heading into the weekend of February 3-4, the Penguins had struggled a bit against some of the league’s heaver outfits — Washington, Columbus, Los Angeles and St. Louis — “Those are two combining to go just 2-4-2 in pretty good their first eight games against hockey teams those clubs. that play a hard But consecutive games against the Blue Jackets at PPG game. There isn’t Paints Arena followed by a visit a whole lot of to the Scottrade Center to take room out there. I on the Blues the next night gave thought our guys ” the Penguins a chance to buck did a real nice job that trend of struggling against physical teams. ~ Mike Sullivan Pittsburgh did exactly that, first by grinding out a 4-3 comefrom-ahead overtime win against the Blue Jackets that was sealed when Phil Kessel tallied his second goal of the night on the man-advantage. One night later, facing a rested St. Louis team that desperately needed points to stay in the Western Conference playoff picture following a recent funk, the Penguins stood up to a Blues team that ran both Carl Hagelin (concussion) and Kris Letang (although he did return) from the game with thunderous hits by producing a 4-1 victory that pulled Pittsburgh even with the Blue Jackets in the standings. “I just told our players it was two hard-fought games,” head coach Mike Sullivan said after the win. “We played the game the right way. We took what the game gave us out there, but we didn’t beat ourselves with mismanagement of the puck in the wrong areas or undisciplined penalties or things of that nature. We were locked in. “Those are two pretty good hockey teams that play a hard game. There isn’t a whole lot of room out there. I thought our guys did a real nice job.”

PENGUINS IN

WONDERLAND Nicole Jelinek It was once said by a little white rabbit, “I’m late, I’m late for a very important date.” However, on Wednesday, no one was late for their important date through the looking glass and into PPG Paints Arena, where instead of ice, pucks and goals guests stumbled into a Mad Tea Party. Down a white hallway of luminous multicolored lights, up to a checkered floor and to the looking glass, Alice herself greeted guests. From there, they reached into a jar reading, “Eat me.” Inside were mints that were given as the golden tick to go through the entryway into a casino wonderland. This was the whimsical open to the Penguins’ third annual Aces & Ice Casino Night presented by Trib Total Media. The theme of the night was the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, where patrons were able to be a part of the night and interact with the Penguins players. “This is just amazing, it’s the third year we have done the casino format,” said Dave Soltesz, president of the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation. “You can see the people getting involved, a lot of hats and dress-up too. The cool thing about it is the Penguins Foundation raises money not only for itself, but also for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Mario Lemieux Foundation.” Some guests were new to the event, but others have been coming since before it became Aces & Ice. Petrina Lloyd remembers being at the event when it was called Skates and Plates. The Penguins have been doing this annual charity event since 1986 and have been able to raise over $6 million.

Down the Rabbit Hole Walking on the floor of the arena was actually like being in Wonderland. There were long tables set up just like the Mad Hatter’s tea party and many of the guests had some amazing hats to fit the theme. 188


“It is wonderful, walking in, it felt like a different world,” said Katie Walos from Franklin Park. “Each year it is such a fun event to come to with different themes. The whole group of us planned our outfits together, so it was fun.” Dale Wayton works at the Kards Unlimited joke shop in Shadyside and said, “I was coming to this Mad Hatter event and asked can I borrow one? And they said yes. It feels great to put up money for a good cause. It is a great time.” The guests did amazing with fitting the theme. Some hats were homemade and others were bought, but the players seemed to blend right in with their suits and fit their role of party dealers.

The Pool of Tears The scenery was very uplifting with the theme that had everyone mad, but in a good way. People enjoyed food, beverages, a silent auction, magic and more. However, spirits were most high at the tables where they could interact with the players, who were teamed up two to a table. Olli Maatta and Patric Hornqvist seemed to have their table locked down. It was filled the entire night and both dealers seemed to be taking the game very seriously. “We are having a fantastic time over here,” said guest John Nictora. “The players are just your average guys, and it is like hanging out with your friends.” continued on page 191

Penguins president and CEO David Morehouse was impressed with both the players’ abilities and the event. “Some of the players have been better than others at blackjack, which is not surprising, but you can see a difference,” he said with a smile. “Some of them look like they have been dealing their whole lives. Everyone looks like they are enjoying themselves.” Ian Cole was definitely one who had fun, even though he did not know the game at his table very well. “I would say I am learning craps, but I am really not learning,” Cole laughed. “(Eric Fehr) knows what he is doing and we have professionals: I am just working the stick here and giving the people their dice.”

A Tea Party Reunion It was a very small world in Wonderland because one guest and player went way back. Attendee Nancy Klasnick enjoyed being at Jake Guentzel’s table because they were family friends. “We know Jake’s parents because his dad coached our son when he played junior hockey in Omaha, Nebraska,” said Klasnick, who played alongside goalie Matt Murray. “We have kept in contact with the family and I sent his mom some photos of him playing and she texted me back saying ‘Thank you for the photos, he loves his card games!’ They have a wonderful family that we have known for a long time.” When asked about Nancy, Jake smiled and said, “They knew my parents before I was even born! I haven’t seen them in so long, so it was special to have them here.” As for him loving card games, he chuckled and said, “Cards have been a family thing. We love it.” 191
