New President Under Fire After Penguins Play To Empty Stadium

Published March 15, 2024 at 6:39 PM

The Penguins have had more trouble keeping up this season, currently standing at 25th in the league overall. However, the team's issues seem to go beyond just the players, as their new President of Hockey Operations is under fire after they played for a nearly empty stadium.

Penguins Play To A Nearly Empty Stadium

Recently, Pittsburgh had the chance to play against San Jose in their home arena. With the Sharks now at the bottom position in the league, it is unsurprising that this would be one of the less-attended games. However, the crowd was even smaller than anticipated, with both teams playing in a nearly empty stadium.

New Penguins President Under Fire For Game Attendance

When he took on the job, Dubas was aware of the responsibility he had in making sure the seats were filled. However, this is the latest in several examples of low-attendance games at the PPG Paint Arena, putting his job at risk.

Fans have started to attack Dubas for his decisions that have led to the small crowds. This includes ticket prices and team lineup decisions.

It is clear there are major issues at hand and likely ahead for Kyle Dubas and the Pittsburgh Penguins. With a very narrow shot at the playoffs, they will probably need a miracle to get a crowd in the building.
