Youth will be served on Saturday at PPG Paints Arena as the Penguins host their ninth annual preseason "Free Game for Kids," presented by Chick-Fil-A.
Fans are reminded that the starting time of the game against the Buffalo Sabres has been moved back one hour to 4 p.m.
The Penguins have donated 18,000 free tickets to young people of the region, as well as parents of younger children and chaperones for youth hockey teams and other kids' groups. All tickets have been distributed.
Chick-Fil-A activations will add to the festive atmosphere at the arena, including appearances by Chick-Fil-A cows, Chick-Fil-A Corn Hole Boards, Chick-Fil-A Plinko boards and various giveaways.
The national anthem will be performed by Aidan Krepin, a sixth grader at Mars Centennial School. There also will be youth announcers for the starting lineups, billboards and the Powerball Powerplay.
More than 10 DICK'S Sporting Goods Jr. Starters of the Game will represent all facets of Pittsburgh youth hockey.
The game will be televised locally on AT&T SportsNet. Radio coverage will be provided by 105.9 The X, with Hall of Famer Mike Lange handling the radio play by play for the first time of the preseason.
