USA Hockey’s Girls Hockey Weekend
The DICK'S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Penguins Elite organization is proud to welcome Logan Bittle as the new 19U Girls Prep and 16U Girls Head Coach. Bittle has spent the past 10 seasons at Robert Morris University where he served as the assistant coach and associate head coach for the Division I women’s ice hockey team.
During his time at Robert Morris, the team claimed three consecutive College Hockey America (CHA) regular-season titles and two CHA tournament titles. Bittle has been instrumental in helping Robert Morris become a national figure in collegiate women’s hockey as the Colonials spent 13 consecutive weeks ranked in the Top 10 during the 2013-14 season.
Most recently, Bittle and the Colonials captured the 2020-21 CHA title earning them a spot in the NCAA tournament where they will face Northeastern.
Bittle will also be an asset to DICK'S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Penguins Elite athletes because of his many relationships with college coaches.
Please join us in welcoming Logan Bittle and his family to the DICK’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Penguins Elite organization!

As the holidays approach, members of the DICK'S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Penguins Elite organization have shown their commitment to community service. The PPE organization’s dedication to giving back is a year round commitment but during the holidays, several teams have undertaken initiatives to spread cheer and benefit local organizations and initiatives.
The Pens Elite 2009 Conway team gathered and packed personal care items for 110 residents of the Riverside Care Center. With the holidays coming up, this act of kindness will provide small gifts to residents that will not have any family or friend visitation during this time.
2011/2010 Edwards took part in the Play it Forward Pittsburgh gift drive collection. This initiative is celebrating its 10th year of donating gently used toys to families in need in the Pittsburgh area. Similarly, 2011 Attanucci took part in the Toys for Tots program which donates new toys to less fortunate children in the community each Christmas. The 19U, 16U and 14U Girls teams took part in a toy drive and donated to Moon Police Department, where they provided unwrapped children’s toys and books. 2009 Nelson also took part in a you drive as they shopped for toys to donate to the Northside Commons Missionary toy drive.
The 2006, 15U, 16U and 18U teams participated in the Friendship Bag Project. Together teams were able to provide over 70 small holiday gift packages which will be presented to a child in need in Washington County. The package consisted of a personal item, a small article of clothing, an activity item and an edible item. 10U Tindall provided care packages for sailors stationed on the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower and also supported the local charity Bethlehem Haven with their care packages.
Thank you to all of our DICK'S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Penguins Elite teams and players for your commitment to serving your community!
