Retired Penguin Pascal Dupuis and announcer Mike Lange to visit Behrend

September 13, 2016

ERIE, Pa. — Left-winger Pascal Dupuis scored 190 goals during a 14-year career that ended with the 2016 Pittsburgh Penguins Stanley Cup championship. Play-by-play announcer Mike Lange called more than a few of those goals. The voice of the Penguins has been announcing since 1974, even winning the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for excellence in broadcasting.

While they’re experts at two uniquely different crafts, they do share one distinct similarity: They’re both champions.

On Monday, Sept. 19, Dupuis and Lang will discuss their championship journeys with the Penguins when they visit Penn State Behrend as part of the campus' Speaker Series. Their presentation — “Champions! - An Evening with Pascal Dupuis and Mike Lange” — begins at 7:30 p.m. in the McGarvey Commons of the Reed Union Building on campus. It is free and open to the public.

In 1974, Lange was hired by KDKA and the Penguins as the team’s radio play-by-play announcer. He’s remained in that role off-and-on ever since and continues to excite fans with his colorful commentary and trademark “Lange-isms.”

Since retiring from the NHL in December, Dupuis has remained active with the Penguins organization, working as a scout and helping with player development. He was also a key part of the Penguins’ 2009 championship team.

Their appearance at Penn State Behrend is made possible by the Student Activity Fee, the Division of Student Affairs, and the Harriet Behrend Ninow Memorial Lecture Series Fund. For additional information, contact the Office of Student Activities at 814-898-6171.
