The Penguins cut off season ticket sales at 14,000 full-season equivalents this summer in order to be able to sell mini-plans and single-game tickets to a wider range of fans.

“We continue to be pleased, amazed and humbled by the support and enthusiasm of Penguins fans,” team president David Morehouse said. “Our players always comment about how exciting it is to play in Pittsburgh before the best fans in the NHL.”
