The Pittsburgh Penguins is an American ice hockey team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The team is recognized for achieving victories in the Stanley Cup five times. The Penguins was founded in 1967 as the National Hockey League began their expansion efforts. The Penguins bear their name to honor the igloo shape of the Mellon Arena, the main base of the team until 2010. The Penguins were a moderately successful franchise for most of the ‘70s. They went through a hard period in the early ‘80s until they manage to draft Mario Lemieux in 1984. The man played the offensive like no one else at the time and went on to become one of the greatest players in the history of the team.
