The Penguins have added 300 seats for games at Consol Energy Center, bringing the capacity to 18,387 for the second season at the arena.

The original capacity, 18,087, was tied to the No. 87 worn by Penguins captain and star center Sidney Crosby.

The team has again capped the number of seats available for season ticket plans at the equivalent of 15,000 per game, leaving room for 2,000 individual-game ticket sales as well as group sales and the popular student rush program.

Individual-game tickets will go on sale next month, although the date has not been set. Details of the student rush program for 2011-12 also are not yet available.

Penguins CEO and president David Morehouse said in a statement that the club has had a 99 percent season ticket renewal. The Penguins have a season ticket waiting list and have sold out 210 home games in a row.
