Penguins goaltender Antti Niemi makes a save on the Sabres’ Matt Moulson in the first period Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017 at Pegula Ice Arena in State College.

The Pittsburgh Penguins will open their preseason schedule Monday, Sept. 16, against the Buffalo Sabres at Penn State’s Pegula Ice Arena.

It will be the second visit to the arena for the Penguins, who faced Buffalo there in 2017. The game will count as a home game for the Sabres, who are owned by Terry Pegula, the arena’s namesake.

The Penguins play three home preseason games, hosting Columbus on Thursday, Sept. 19, Detroit on Wednesday, Sept. 25 and Buffalo on Saturday, Sept. 28.

The home game against Buffalo, with a 3 p.m. start, will be team’s annual Free Game for Kids.

The Penguins also will play two other road games, visiting Columbus on Saturday, Sept. 21, and Detroit on Sunday, Sept. 22.

The team also announced it will open training camp Friday, Sept. 13, hold its annual prospect development camp June 26-28 and that it will again participate in the Buffalo rookie tournament Sept. 6-9.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
