The Pittsburgh Penguins report to training camp on Saturday, Sept. 12, when players will undergo physicals and fitness testing at the UPMC facility on the South Side. Players report at 8 a.m.

The Penguins will hit the ice at Mellon Arena from Sunday, Sept. 13 through Wednesday, Sept. 16, with all four daily sessions being open to the public free of charge. Fans may enter the arena via Gate 1 starting 15 minutes prior to the start of practice. Parking in arena lots will be based on availability and daily rates will apply on weekdays. Concession stands and PenStation, the Penguins official team store, will be open inside Mellon Arena.

The team’s six-game pre-season schedule will begin only a few days after the start of camp, as the Penguins host the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday, Sept. 15 at Mellon Arena. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

On Thursday, Sept. 17, the Penguins will travel to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, home of their American Hockey League affiliate, to take part in a “Black and Gold” intra-squad game.

The following evening, Friday, Sept. 18, Pittsburgh hosts the Toronto Maple Leafs at Mellon Arena at 7:30 p.m. for the second of two home pre-season games.

The Penguins then take their pre-season campaign on the road – to Montreal (Monday, Sept. 21), Toronto (Tuesday, Sept. 22), Columbus (Thursday, Sept. 24) and finishing at Detroit (Sunday, Sept. 27), the site where the Penguins hoisted the Stanley Cup just three months earlier.

Individual game tickets for all regular-season home games will go on sale Saturday, Sept. 12 at 10 a.m. The Gate 1 Box Office will be open Sunday, Sept. 13 at 9 a.m. and weekdays at 10 a.m. for fans to purchase tickets.

The Penguins will open the regular season by raising their 2009 Stanley Cup Champions banner Oct. 2 vs. the New York Rangers at Mellon Arena at 7:30 p.m.
