Penguins to Open New Arena in 2010

PITTSBURGH
– The Pittsburgh Penguins will
wait until the 2010-11 season to open their new arena, rather than open it
during the 2009-10 campaign as initially planned.

Waiting
until the 2010-11 season will give the team time to do the building right, both
for the team and city, team spokesman Tom McMillan said Thursday.

“The
right thing to do is to do it the right way. The matter of a few more months
will enable us to do that,” he said.

The wait is not expected to increase the arena’s
$290 million cost.
