New Penguins scoreboard at PPG Paints Arena is a beauty

She's a beaut, Clark!



It's a new era for the Pittsburgh Penguins, who cleaned house in the front office after missing the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since Sidney Crosby's rookie season of 2005-06. In comes former Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas, who is now the president of hockey operations for Pittsburgh. 

And while Dubas certainly has a tough road ahead as the careers of Pittsburgh's "Big 3" of Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang are starting to come to a close, one element that is brand new that will be greeting fans this fall at PPG Paints Arena is a brand new scoreboard, replacing the original that was in place when the venue (formerly known as Consol Energy Center) opened for the 2010-11 season. The update is part of some $30 million in upgrades 

Based on the renderings that have been released, the new scoreboard will look very similar to the new models introduced at San Jose's SAP Center as well as the new UBS Arena, home of the New York Islanders. 

"We are committed to maintaining PPG Paints Arena as a world-class destination not only for Penguins hockey, but for concerts and marquee events," said Penguins President of Business Operations, Kevin Acklin. "We are investing millions to replace our entire in-game entertainment technology, as well as building exciting new premium spaces, to offer immersive experiences for our fans and guests that will be truly unique to our Pittsburgh market."
