Mike Lange will be entering his 45th season as a Penguins broadcaster in 2019-20, and the team will celebrate his amazing Hall of Fame career with "Mike Lange Night" on October 8 vs. Winnipeg at PPG Paints Arena.
Courtesy of UPMC, all fans in attendance that night will receive a special Lange bobblehead as part of the festivities. There also will be a pre-game ceremony on the ice (although Mike, at his insistence, will then hustle back to the radio booth to call play-by-play on 105.9 FM The X and the Penguins Radio Network!)
The Penguins promotional schedule, announced today, will also feature a Jim Rutherford bobblehead on November 19 vs. the New York Islanders - honoring the general manager who built back-to-back Stanley Cup champions in 2016 and 2017, and who will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame this year.
Individual game tickets go on sale August 7 at 10 a.m.
Eight popular theme nights, which give fans an opportunity to "dress the part," will range from the traditional "Ugly Holiday Sweaters" (two nights) to "Star Wars" to a newly-created "Pittsburgh" theme night, celebrating Pittsburgh memorabilia and pop culture.
In addition, at the October 10 game vs. Anaheim, the first 3,000 kids ages 12 and under in attendance will receive a Sidney Crosby Growth Chart.
