One of the NHL’s first expansion franchise’s when the league went from six to 12 teams in 1967, the Pittsburgh Penguins sure have made up for lost time. In their brief existence, the Pens have already won five Stanley Cup trophies, their most recent coming in 2016-17. Along with the Edmonton Oilers, Pittsburgh is tied for most Cup championships among non-“Original Six” teams. By winning back-to back titles in 2016 and 2017, the Penguins became the first repeat champ in nearly two decades. Join a tradition characterized by the likes of player/owner Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr, Sidney Crosby and Paul Coffey; grab your Pittsburgh Penguins tickets at StubHub.
Pittsburgh Penguins Info
Playing without goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury for the first time in 14 years, the two-time defending Stanley Cup champs (47-29-6) saw their season come to an end with a loss to the eventual titlist Washington Capitals in the second round of the playoffs. So much for a three-peat. But Captain Sidney Crosby & Co. should be in the hunt again in 2018-19 after inking free agent defenseman Jack Johnson to a five-year, $16.25 million deal.
Pittsburgh Penguins History
The signing of Czech scoring sensation Jaromir Jagr would change the course of history for the Pittsburgh Penguins. With Mario Lemieux recovering from a herniated disc, the team selected 18-year-old Jagr as the fifth overall pick in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. The right winger would lead the franchise to their first two Stanley Cup titles in 1991 and 1992. He was the NHL’s scoring leader five times, including four straight between 1998 and 2001. He has the second most points in NHL history.
