50 Years of Penguins Hockey
As the Pittsburgh Penguins celebrate their fourth Stanley Cup victory, the History Center and Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum recently launched a new display honoring 50 years of Penguins hockey.
Featuring hundreds of photos, including many from the pages of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the new display includes iconic images from the team’s first season in 1967 through their history-making run in the 2016 Stanley Cup Finals.
As part of the display, the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum recently unveiled a new life-like figure of Penguins legend Mario Lemieux. The 25-year old Lemieux is shown triumphantly hoisting an exact replica of the Stanley Cup, which features every championship team and player, on the History Center’s fourth floor Campbell Gallery.
