Pittsburgh Penguins Logo History


Pittsburgh Penguins joined the NHL in 1967. The team nickname was invented by the wife of one of the investors, Carol MacGregor. The locals dubbed Civic Arena, where the team played at, with the word igloo for the dome-shaped roof which gave her the idea- the igloo, the ice, the penguins. The golden triangle in the Penguins logo symbolizes the city with its skyscrapers, shopping and office centers, theaters, and bridges.
