PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- The Pittsburgh Penguins will celebrate their Hall of Fame broadcaster Mike Lange at a game later this month at PPG Paints Arena.
The Penguins say they plan to dedicate their game on Tuesday, Oct. 19, to the longtime play-by-play broadcaster.
The team says, "Mike will be the guest of honor as he watches his first hockey game in decades as a fan."
Lange, 73, spent 46 years as the voice of the Penguins. He officially hung up his headset in August.
In addition to in-game tributes and video memories, fans with tickets will get cheer cards when they enter the arena. The cards will feature Lange's famous sayings to use during the game.
In a statement, Lange said, "I am more than honored to share this night with the fans of Pittsburgh. I'll be smiling like a butcher's dog while I enjoy the hockey game."
The Oct. 19 game against the Dallas Stars starts at 7 p.m.
Tickets for the game can be found here.
