The Penguins are known to be interested in hosting the draft, which would be held at the recently opened Consol Energy Center, but team has also stated it plans to hold a number of other events in the preceeding week if given the opportunity.
Because of the expansive nature of the planned festivities, the city required the use of its convention center, which had already been booked for the June 21 to 24 by Anthrocon, an annual gathering of Furries.
