PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) – Pens training camp begins in days with the first game nearly a month away as the team announced it’s promotional schedule for the coming season. It features bobbleheads.
The big three will all have their bobblehead nights starting with Sidney Crosby on January 6 against Buffalo, Evgeni Malkin on January 27 against Montreal and also against Montreal, fitting because it’s his hometown, Kris Letang on February 22.
A few of the traditional giveaways return-Pens will give away a trapper hat during the Hockey Fights Cancer Game on November 16 against New Jersey. There is a patterned shirt giveaway on March 28 against Columbus and an Iceburgh plush handed out when the Pens host Tampa Bay on April 6.
