(PENGUINS OWNERS ACCEPT OFFER TO MEET WITH ELECTED OFFICIALS ON ARENA)

January 3, 2007

Statement from Penguins owners Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle:

“We are meeting with officials in Kansas City today as part of our effort to explore all of our options regarding a new arena. We have heard many great things about their new building, which is scheduled to open in time for the start of the 2007-08 NHL season. We will meet with Governor Rendell, County Executive Onorato and Mayor Ravenstahl in Pittsburgh on Thursday, and we will continue to explore other options as well. Our hope is to reach a new arena deal as soon as possible that will best ensure the economic health and long-term future of the Penguins franchise.”

The Penguins organization will have no further comment at this time.
