Favorite Player: Jagr, Letang, Hagelin, Roberts, Rust


 I am a 2005 graduate of Clairton High School and attended Slippery Rock University. I stumbled upon hockey when I was three and, thanks to Jagr, I never looked back.  I wear many hats but my ultimate goal is to work as hard as possible to make it into sports media full time (writing, reporting, public relations, etc). I reside south of Pittsburgh and when I have the time, I enjoy cooking, baking, and doing anything fun with those that mean the most. Kat Stratford is my spirit animal.

Favorite Player: Malkin, Jagr


Matt is a mechanical engineer who spends all of his waking hours at work, Penguins games, talking about hockey, or playing dek hockey in beer leagues around the city.  It’s been questioned whether Matt is more of a Penguins fan or more of a Jagr fan – and the answer’s not obvious.  It’s a close call.  Since Matt was a four-year-old reading the IceTime during the intermission, he has been obsessed with hockey statistics and trends.  His background in engineering will be evident as Matt’s focus with our hockey blog will be to analyze and dissect statistical trends for the Pittsburgh Penguins and hopefully make some sense of it all.

Favorite Player: Jaromir Jagr

Jon started watching the Penguins when he was just seven years old. One of his first memories from games include being interviewed by KDKA's John Shumway following Mario Lemieux's return to the ice in 2001. That's really his only claim to fame.

Prior to this spring, he had a losing record in the "playoff games attended" category so he avoided Consol Energy Center for the first two rounds despite being a season ticket holder.

Since working for the Penguins in college, Jon has wanted to find another position where he could talk about the Penguins with fellow Penguin fans. PI does just that!

For the past three years, Jon has been one of the NHL correspondents for Youngstown Sports Live on ESPN 1240 in Youngstown.
Right now he works as a reporter in Cleveland, but don't hold that against him.

He's really uncomfortable talking about himself and even more so in when it's in the third person... But shoot him an email or tweet him and talk about, what else, the Penguins!
