by Pittsburgh Penguins @penguins / Media Release

Nearly three months to the day after clinching a second-straight Stanley Cup championship, the Pittsburgh Penguins will begin another title defense when they open training camp on Friday, September 15 at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex in Cranberry, Pa.

Head coach Mike Sullivan and his staff will conduct their first practices of the 2017-18 season on Friday morning at 9:00 AM. Team 1 will be on Rink 1, and Team 2 will practice on Rink 2.

Teams 1 and 2 will then partake in a scrimmage against one another from 10:00-10:45 AM on Rink 1, before both squads finish their morning with conditioning until 11:05 AM. 

Team 3 has two practice sessions on Friday, both on Rink 1. That team will have its first practice from 11:30 AM-12:15 PM, then it will finish with a practice that spans from 12:45-1:30 PM.

All training camp practices at the UMPC Lemieux Sports Complex are free of charge and open to the public.

A complete Pittsburgh Penguins' training camp roster will be announced later this week.
