The 1983–84 Pittsburgh Penguins season was the club's seventeenth season of operation in the National Hockey League (NHL). The Penguins placed sixth in their division and did not qualify for the playoffs.

OffseasonEdit

Eddie Johnston, who had been the interim general manager, was awarded the GM title in June. He named Lou Angotti to take over the coaching duties.[1]

A controversy surrounding the end of the 1983-84 season was the apparent throwing of games by the Pittsburgh Penguins in order to secure Lemieux as a draft pick. Angiotti later admitted this, though Johnston has not.[2]
