Statement from David Morehouse, president and CEO of the Pittsburgh Penguins, on the passing of Dan Rooney:
"Dan Rooney exemplified the very best of Pittsburgh. He was classy, courteous, dedicated, honest, hard-working - and, most of all, he never forgot where he came from. He and his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers set the standard for operating a first-class professional sports franchise - both on and off the field - and his generous contributions to our community will never be forgotten. From a personal standpoint, I was honored to call him a friend and always appreciated his unwavering support of the Penguins. We send our deepest condolences to his wife, Patricia, and the entire Rooney family. Mr. Rooney was a champion and a true Pittsburgh icon. He will be missed."
