Tonight’s game marks the Penguins’ 150th straight sellout at Mellon Arena, another team record.
The Penguins sold out every game in the 2007-08 and 2008-09 seasons, including playoffs. The streak began late in the 2006-07 season.
“Every time we reach one of these milestones it gives us another chance to salute the greatest fans in hockey,” said team president David Morehouse. “Penguins’ fans are the foundation of this franchise, and their continued support never ceases to amaze us. Together with our players, our corporate partners and our youth hockey community, they have helped establish Pittsburgh as one of the foremost hockey hotbeds in the United States.”
After selling out all suites at Mellon Arena the past two seasons, the Penguins already have sold out all 66 suites and all 32 loge boxes for the new Consol Energy Center for the 2010-11 season.
The Penguins cut off season ticket sales at 14,000 this season in order to make tickets available for fans who wanted to buy mini-plans or individual game tickets. The club also has continued its popular American Eagle Student Rush program, with discounted tickets, based on availability, for college and high school students. In addition, there are ticket programs for groups and youth hockey teams.
The team’s season ticket waiting list for Consol Energy Center is now at 3,600 members, accounting for 8,000 seats. Waiting list members receive a number of special perks, including the exclusive opportunity to buy mini-plans; the opportunity to purchase tickets for selected games and selected non-hockey events before they go on sale to the public; and a Penguins media guide and yearbook.
The Penguins also have a waiting list for suites.
