Steelback's D'Angelo Comments on the Status of the Sale of the Pittsburgh Penguins

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 5, 2007) - Amidst persistent inquiries into the status of the possible purchase of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Steelback Brewery and D'Angelo Brands' C.E.O. Frank D'Angelo has decided to release a statement today to update all interested parties on the progress of this situation. "The team has been taken off the market until there is greater clarity on the arena/relocation issues. We have been in touch with the Penguins' organization and we are happy to report that if the sale process is re-ignited we will be given our fair chance to bid for the NHL franchise." stated D'Angelo.

While interest continues to surround the NHL club D'Angelo insists nothing has changed in his bid to buy the Penguins. "I would welcome the opportunity to be a part of this storied franchise and bring another championship to Pittsburgh. Bottom line for myself, for Steelback Brewery, and for our organization is that if we were to purchase this team it would stay in Pittsburgh where it belongs."
