The 1999-2000 Pittsburgh Penguins season was the team's 33rd in the National Hockey League. It was the first season under ownership led by former superstar Mario Lemieux.

Offseason[edit | edit source]

In June of 1999, a U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge granted former player Mario Lemieux ownership of the Penguins franchise, who were in danger of either relocating to Portland, Oregon or folding. Lemieux received final approval of team ownership by NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman on September 3, 1999.
