Recognition and eventsEdit

The Wachovia Arena at Casey Plaza has been recognized by many entertainment magazines as one of the best in the country for arenas under 10,000 in capacity, especially for its attendance and ease of show setup and teardown. The Penguins hold the American Hockey League record for most sellouts in a season, selling out all 40 home games in 2002-03 and 2003-04, and ran a streak of 144 consecutive sellouts in the building from 2000-2004. The team is consistently among the AHL's leaders in attendance.
