Mario Lemieux, co-owner and chairman of the Pittsburgh Penguins, today announced the "Consol Energy Center" will be the team's new home starting in 2010 until at least 2030. The franchise struck a deal with the major energy conglomerate for naming rights to the arena for the next 21 years. President of the Penguins David Morehouse says there are a lot of similarities between the energy company and the energetic young hockey team. The name will be featured on the outer facade of the arena as well as various places inside. The details of the deal for the naming rights are undisclosed.
