On Sunday, October 23, the Pittsburgh Penguins and American Red Cross teamed up to help save lives. The annual Score One for Life Blood Drive was held at CONSOL Energy Center and fans rose to the occasion to help ensure that blood is available when patients need it.

In addition to helping to save lives, blood donors received a Jordan Staal jersey-style t-shirt and were eligible to win Penguins memorabilia. Fans also had the opportunity to meet and chat with Penguins alumni members Phil Bourque, Jay Caufield, Francois Leroux, Bryan Trottier and Ken Wregget along with team broadcaster Paul Steigerwald. Penguins mascot Iceburgh and the Ice Crew were on also hand to interact with donors.

After giving blood, fans enjoyed refreshments from Dr. Pepper Snapple Group and snacks from National Pretzel Company/HK Anderson and Shearer’s.

Every two seconds, someone in the United States is in need of blood and more than 44,000 blood donations are needed every day. In hosting an annual Score One for Life Blood Drive, the Pittsburgh Penguins and American Red Cross are able to shore up local supplies and save lives.

The one-day drive at CONSOL Energy Center produced a total of 381 units of blood, which equals 1,143 lives saved. This collection would not have been possible without the outstanding support of our fans and we thank each donor for their participation.
