It is relatively close to Pittsburgh, easily drivable both ways for attending Pens' home games, even on weeknights. It is within the Pens’ market region and within the Root Sports viewing area and the city currently has a station on the Pens’ radio network. The Youngstown Metro Area has the largest population by far of any metro area within the Pens’ market region outside of the Pittsburgh Metro Area. It has more population than Winnipeg’s metro area.

Still though, that's a big chunk that you'd want to draw hockey interest
