NHLWith the winter holidays just around the corner, the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation has unveiled the Civic Arena Roof Ornament. The 2012 commemorative ornament produced by Wendell August Forge pays tribute to the franchise’s three Stanley Cup championships.

The steel ornaments are produced from the actual steel from the old Civic Arena roof. According to the Penguins, “as the final pieces of structure on the arena site were dismantled earlier this year, a limited amount of steel became available. Wendell August Forge purchased the remaining roof which has been used to create this third and final Civic Arena ornament to honour the storied history of the Civic Arena and the Pittsburgh Penguins.”

The Wendell August Forge ornament, which costs $29, sells exclusively through the foundation’s website pittsburghpenguinsfoundation.org.

“We were very fortunate to have additional steel become available for this third commemorative Civic Arena ornament,” stated Dave Soltesz, Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation president. “The extra steel allows us to create and sustain valuable athletic and educational programs for our local youth.”

The three-ornament series, which includes the new ornament from 2012 plus two ornaments from 2011, is also available via the foundation website for $99.
