It's an unemployed hockey fan's hat trick: a free NHL game, a first look at a brand-new arena and a job fair all at once.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are giving away all 18,000 tickets for its Sept. 25, preseason game against the Columbus Blue Jackets at the new Consol Energy Center. Eight-thousand of the ticket-holders, mostly college and trade school students, will get to discuss hiring prospects with local businesses such as Lanxess, Bayer, U.S. Steel, Westinghouse, PNC Bank and Highmark at an in-game meet-and-greet arranged by ImaginePittsburghJobs.com.
