The Pittsburgh Penguins’ first expanded Student Rush night of the season will be held Thursday when the Pens take on the Montreal Canadiens at 7 p.m. at CONSOL Energy Center.
The American Eagle Outfitters Student Rush program normally offers 200 discounted tickets each game to local college and high school students. But on five nights this season – starting with Thursday’s game – the Penguins will reserve more than 500 tickets for Student Rush.
Cost of the tickets is $25 cash. Students with valid college or high school IDs may line up for the tickets along Fifth Avenue, leading up to the American Eagle gate. The tickets will go on sale on a first-come, first-served basis an hour before game time at 6 p.m. There also will be music, prizes and giveaways starting at 4 p.m. on Thursday.
“Students are among our most loyal and passionate fans, and the American Eagle Outfitters Student Rush program enables us to thank them and give them a chance to experience Penguins hockey at a discounted price,” said David Peart, the Penguins’ Senior VP of Sales and Service. “Even though we are in a sellout situation – with 213 straight sellouts heading into Thursday’s game – we believe it is very important to continue to build this connection with the young people of our region.”
Other games for expanded American Eagle Outfitters Student Rush are Tuesday, Nov. 15 vs. Colorado, Wednesday, Feb. 15 vs. Anaheim, Friday, March 9 vs. Florida and Tuesday, March 27 vs. the New York Islanders.
