Pittsburgh Penguins

The Pittsburgh Penguins are a professional ice hockey team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They are members of the Metropolitan Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League. The franchise was founded in 1967 as one of the first expansion teams during the league’s original expansion from six to twelve teams. The Penguins played in the Civic Arena, also known to Pittsburgh fans as “The Igloo”, from the time of their inception through the end of the 2009–10 season. They moved into their new arena, PPG Paints Arena, to begin the 2010–11 season. They have qualified for six Stanley Cup Finals, winning the Stanley Cup five times – in 1991, 1992, 2009, 2016, and 2017. Along with the Edmonton Oilers, the Penguins are tied for the most Cup championships among non-Original Six teams. With their Stanley Cup wins in 2016 and 2017, the Penguins became the first back-to-back champions in 19 years (since the 1997–98 Detroit Red Wings) and the first team to do so since the introduction of the salary cap.
