Fenway Sports Group, which owns the Penguins, is taking ownership of AT&T Sportsnet Pittsburgh, which carries the club’s broadcasts. That move goes into implementation on Oct. 2. The station will be given the new name SportsNet Pittsburgh.
Errey played for the Red Wings from 1995-97. He was part of Detroit’s 1995 Stanley Cup finalist squad. Prior to that, he was a back-to-back Cup winner with the Penguins in 1990-91 and 1991-92.
