The Pittsburgh Penguins will launch a weeklong series of contests and giveaways to thank and honor the “greatest fans in hockey”. The events will begin Monday, April 7 as part of Fan Appreciation Week presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods. Prizes, including tickets to upcoming home playoff games, autographed merchandise and DICK’S Sporting Goods gift cards, will be given away for seven consecutive days from April 7 through Sunday, April 13.

The team will use its various social media and traditional media outlets to offer prizes during the week – and the celebration will culminate with the popular “Shirts Off Our Backs” promotion at the April 13 regular-season finale against the Ottawa Senators.

Fans are encouraged to participate via the Penguins mobile app on Monday; PensPoints (the team’s fan loyalty program) on Tuesday; Twitter on Wednesday; their mobile alerts program on Thursday; Facebook on Friday; on Saturday and the Penguins ROOT Sports telecast on Sunday.

Fans with tickets to the Sunday, April 13 game against Ottawa will receive a scratch off card when their tickets are scanned at CONSOL Energy Center for a chance to participate in the fan-favorite “Shirts Off Our Backs” ceremony. Additional prizes will be awarded courtesy of DICK’S Sporting Goods, Dairy Queen, GNC, McDonald's, Nakama, PensGear, Sarris Candies, Sheetz and Walgreens.
