2015 Pittsburgh Penguins preseason schedule

The Pittsburgh Penguins announced their 2015 preseason schedule.

They are the home team for the Kraft Hockeyville USA game on September 29th in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

From the team's official news release:

Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay will square off in the inaugural Kraft Hockeyville USA matchup at War Memorial Arena in Johnstown, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, September 29th. That game will be nationally broadcast on NBC Sports Network with a starting time still to be determined.

The Penguins held all or parts of three training camps in Johnstown between 1981-1983. Pittsburgh moved its training camp back to Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania in 1984 to coincide with Mario Lemieux's first NHL season.

They will play a total of 8 preseason games, most in 10 years. One road game worth noting is on September 28th.

It will be the first game at the Vidéotron Centre in Québec City.
