No one is probably looking forward to turning the page over to the 2019-20 season more than the Penguins, and today the first step to that is announcing the preseason schedule.
From the team:
The Penguins will open up their six-game pre-season schedule against the Buffalo Sabres on Monday, September 16 at 7:00PM at Penn State University’s Pegula Ice Arena. This is the second time in the last three seasons Pittsburgh has visited State College for a pre-season game.
Three days later, the Penguins will play their first home pre-season contest, as they take on one of their Metropolitan Division rivals, the Columbus Blue Jackets, on Thursday, September 19 at PPG Paints Arena.
Following that, Pittsburgh will play back-to-back road games on Saturday, September 21 and Sunday, September 22 against the Blue Jackets and Detroit Red Wings respectively.
The Penguins will conclude their pre-season slate with home games on Wednesday, September 25 versus the Red Wings, and Saturday, September 28 against the Sabres. Saturday’s contest against Buffalo is the team’s ninth annual “Free Game For Kids”.
Pre-season television and radio information will be released at a later date.
The opener, at Penn State, should be a fun one too.

Otherwise this is pretty much the standard Pittsburgh preseason with home-and-homes with geographically friendly places in Columbus, Buffalo and Detroit. Now we just need stupid summer to get over with.
Penguins training camp opens on September 13th.
