The Pens are not only celebrating the 50th anniversary of the original team, they are also honoring the team that brought them back to the National Hockey League.
On Wednesday, the Pens announced the Pens Family of Star team-ups for a boat launch on June 11 at the Liberty National Marina in Key Largo, Florida.
This will be the first time the Pens have teamed up with the Pens family of stars in over a decade.
The Pens Family will take part in the team-based, free event, which will feature team members and the Pens’ former captain, Mark Streit, in the lineup.
The lineup will include teammates from the Pens and players from other Pens teams, such as the Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Islanders, Ottawa Senators and Tampa Bay Lightning.
Mark Streits son, Josh, will be part of this boat launch.
Josh Streit will be one of the Pens stars on hand to attend the boat launch, as will the Pens legend, Pens captain Sidney Crosby, who is also on hand.
The celebration will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with live music, food, autographs and a game of catch.
It will also feature an opportunity for fans to meet other members of the family, including Pens legends and former Pens players such as Steve Yzerman, Steve Bernier, Dan Bylsma and Brian Campbell.
The team will also bring on local food trucks to the event.
“We are so excited to be part, and it’s such a special day for the Pens, their family and the community of Key Locker,” said team captain Scott Harrington.
“We are thrilled to be able to partner with the Pittsburgh Pens, and we hope to see many Pens Family members join us on this amazing event in the coming months.”
The Pens’ family of star will also be on hand at other events, such the upcoming Pens Family Classic at Key Locking Park in Key Biscayne, Florida, as well as at the Pens Holiday Classic at the Great American Ball Park in Florida.
In 2018, the Penguins won the Stanley Cup.
In 2017, the team captured the Presidents’ Trophy, which is awarded to the NHL’s top scorer, the NHL All-Star team and the Stanley Cups.
The Pens are also celebrating their 30th anniversary with a special, one-night celebration at Key Bison in Key West, Florida in early February.
During the celebration, the club will perform the team anthem, the “Gotta Have It” theme song and perform the “Blue Streaks” song by the Florida Panthers.
The club will also perform “The Great Gatsby” and “A Day in the Life of an American Hero” by the Detroit Pistons, as it hosts the annual “Carmen Ball” in Key Bay, Florida for the past 35 years.
Pens’ legend and captain, Sidney Crosby will also join the Pens for the event, along with former team captain and current New York Rangers captain, Kevin Shattenkirk.
