The Pittsburgh Penguins players and coaches gathered inside the Lexus Club inside CONSOL Energy Center on Tuesday afternoon to participate in the 25th annual Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce “Face-Off” luncheon.

Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury waves to the crowd at the Chamber of Commerce "Face-Off" Luncheon.
Penguins Hall of Fame radio broadcaster Mike Lange and radio color commentator Phil Bourque served as emcees as the 2010-11 squad was introduced along with CEO David Morehouse, general manager Ray Shero, assistant general manager Jason Botterill, head coach Dan Bylsma and the rest of the coaching staff.

The highlight of the introductions occurred when Lange welcomed injured forward Jordan Staal, who is currently out following a procedure to repair an infection in his foot.

“You walk pretty good,” Lange said. “If Thursday was a playoff game you’d play.”

On cue, Staal did a small jump into the air to show he is on the road to recovery.

As the attendees ate lunch, three videos were played showcasing the construction of CONSOL Energy Center, a sampling of the Penguins in the community and highlights from last season.

The luncheon concluded with Lange and Bourque raffling off autographed prizes which included a Sidney Crosby black game jersey.
