The Pittsburgh Penguins are a professional ice hockey team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Penguins joined the NHL in the 1967 expansion and play in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference of the NHL at home in the Mellon Arena (or the Igloo as it is still known locally). The Penguins won the Stanley Cup in 1990-91 and 1991-92 under the leadership of Mario Lemieux. Lemieux is considered one of the best hockey players in the game winning many awards, and now is a part owner of the team. The Penguins have not performed well since Lemieux retired and were a small market team so they could not pay for large talent of the NHL. However the Penguins won the 2005 Entry Draft and selected a new star, Sidney Crosby.
