Pittsburgh Hockey History.
The season is underway! We still have a long way to go to get everything updated on this site, but we are making steady progress. Thanks for all of your support and encouragement.
Our homepage highlights Pittsburgh Hockey History Made on this date. If offers a fresh set of milestones every day at midnight.
We present the city’s hockey history timeline, jersey histories, arena descriptions, all-time uniform numbers, rosters and some statistical snippets that are complimented with photographs of Pittsburgh hockey artifacts.
• Hobey Baker, America’s Greatest Hockey Star, likely may have played the last game of his career in the Steel City.
• Long before Iceburgh, the Penguins had a real live penguin for a mascot, but he had a sad story.
• Can’t remember the last time the Penguins scored a short-handed goal or on a penalty shot? Have a look at “THE LAST TIME” feature to refresh your memory.

HERE’S WHAT TO EXPECT:
• Complete playing statistics for every man (and one woman!) that played professional hockey in Pittsburgh. For a sneak peek, you can visit the new STATS CENTRAL PAGE page by clicking here.
• The Penguins uniform history pages. They are back and organized better than before. Here’s the EVOLUTION OF THE PENGUINS JERSEY over the last four decades.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
• We are in constant pursuit of old programs, news clippings, scrapbooks and other memories. We’d love if if you shared copies of your old stuff. We’ll continue to expand this collection to share with our readers.
• We are non-profit. This site is brought to you ad-free. We will be working on a grass-roots effort to help us fund this community and will soon offer a “make a donation” link.
• Finally, we need help editing our content. Please report typos, missing links or factual errors. Accuracy is the most important aspect of what we do.
Thank you for visiting us and for preserving Pittsburgh’s rich hockey history.
