Season holders of the Pittsburgh Penguins were able to express creativity by painting their home ice rink.
With the Penguin’s season ending Sunday night during game seven against the New York Rangers, the ice will no longer be needed at PPG Paints Arena until the start of next season.
According to our partners at TribLIVE.com, season ticket holders were invited to use the ice as a cold canvas to spread messages and art.

This was the first time the Penguins have held the event since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Drawings of current and past players were added to the ice, along with “thank you” messages written to the players for their performances during the season. Pittsburgh slang could also be spotted on the ice, such as the infamous “yinz.” Iceberg the Penguin also managed to land a portrait on the ice.
Some fans left behind their own stories, leaving names and even playing tic-tac-toe.
“Spectacular creativity and unwavering support. Shoutout to all the season ticket holders who joined us at last night’s Paint the Ice event, presented by PPG,” said the Penguins in a tweet.
