Primanti's honors Penguins' HBK line with sandwich

| Thursday, May 19, 2016, 5:30 p.m.

The Penguins' third line of Carl Hagelin, Nick Bonino and Phil Kessel — the “HBK” line — has grown in popularity so much that it has its own sandwich.

Primanti Bros. on Thursday unveiled a triple-meat sandwich of ham, bacon and kielbasa. The restaurateur announced the sandwich would be available beginning Friday for a limited time.

Primanti's billed the sandwich as “large enough for Phil Kessel's unruly appetite” while still being “perfect for Hagelin, Bonino and all Pens' fans.”

“We watched the ‘HBK' line dominate the Lighting (on Wednesday) night, and after a few IC Lights, we jumped in the kitchen and started experimenting,” Marc Teklinski, Primanti Bros.' chief sandwich development officer, said in a news release. “After a late night in The Strip — BOOM, we created The HBK Sandwich.”

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.
