The Pittsburgh Penguins announce plans for "Mike Lange Night" on Tuesday, October 19 when the team hosts the Dallas Stars at 7:00 PM at PPG Paints Arena.
Lange, 73, announced his retirement as the team's play-by-play broadcaster in August after 46 years as the voice of the Penguins. Mike will be the guest of honor as he watches his first hockey game in decades as a fan.
"Mike is family. He will forever be a part of our team," said president and CEO David Morehouse. "It is important to us that he receives the recognition and adoration that he deserves. There is no better way to show him our appreciation than to honor him in front of a full arena of Penguins' faithful."
All fans in attendance will receive cheer cards featuring one of Mike Lange's famous sayings to use during the game. In-game tributes and video memories will be shared throughout the game in honor of Lange's retirement.
"I am more than honored to share this night with the fans of Pittsburgh," said Mike Lange. "I'll be smiling like a butcher's dog while I enjoy the hockey game."
Tickets to be a part of this special evening are available here.
