Pens Fans Named “NHL’s Best”

by Staff Writer / Pittsburgh Penguins

Congratulations, Penguins fans! You were just named “The NHL’s Best Fans” by Forbes for the third straight time (not that we’re surprised!)

Forbes based its NHL rankings based on five sets of fan engagement criteria:

· Hometown crowd reach (percentage of the local population that watched, attended and/or listened to a game in the last year)

· Three years of television ratings

· Three years of attendance, based on capacity

· Three years of merchandise sales

· Social media reach

“We talk often about how fortunate we are to have the greatest fans in hockey,” said David Morehouse, president and CEO of the Penguins. “Their loyalty, enthusiasm and commitment have a tremendously positive affect on our players, coaches and staff. It motivates us. We’re delighted to see them recognized once again for their passion for Penguins hockey.”
