Iceburgh.jpg

Iceburgh is the official mascot of the Pittsburgh Penguins. He debuted for the 1991-92 NHL Season. Iceburgh was known as "Icey" in the 1995 film Sudden Death starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, filmed at the Pittsburgh Civic Arena, which was years later demolished. In the movie, Iceburgh's costume was worn by Carla, one of the film's antagonists. The name Iceburgh is a play on the word iceberg and the city Pittsburgh. He usually wears a Penguins jersey with the number "00". The costume is almost identical to that of his Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins' counterpart, Tux. The only difference being that Iceburgh has an orange neck, and Tux's neck is red. Tux also wears red gloves and Iceburgh wears black. Tux wears number "99" on his back with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins logo on the front of his jersey.
