The Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers have had informal discussions about playing a game at Beaver Stadium on the Penn State campus.
The talks have been between Penguins CEO David Morehouse and Flyers president Peter Luukko.
"It would be great for Pennsylvania hockey," Morehouse said.
Luukko confirmed the discussions to The Philadelphia Inquirer.
It likely would not be played during the coming season, when the Penguins will face Chicago in an outdoors game at Solider Field, but could happen during the 2014-15 season, if approved by all the appropriate parties.
Such a game, which has been the subject of much speculation in recent years, reportedly has strong support from Penn State officials.
