PITTSBURGH -- Longtime Pittsburgh Penguins public address announcer John Barbero has died of a brain tumor at 65.
His family says he died Monday night.
Barbero worked Penguins games for more than 30 years, beginning in 1972.
His last one was the team's Game 6 victory in the 2009 Stanley Cup finals. The Penguins won Game 7 in Detroit to capture their third championship.
Barbero's signature call was on Mario Lemieux's goals, when he would draw out the star's last name for emphasis.
The Penguins plan to honor Barbero with a display at Consol Energy Center, the new arena that is opening in August.
Funeral arrangements are incomplete.
