Limited partner in Pittsburgh Penguins ownership group files lawsuit over ‘clandestine’ sale to Fenway Sports

Dec 30, 2021

A limited partner in the ownership of the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins has filed a lawsuit trying to block the sale of the team to the same group that owns baseball’s Boston Red Sox.

Wildfire Productions filed the complaint Dec. 15 in Delaware, accusing Penguins majority owners Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle of “clandestine back-room maneuvering,” in accelerating the sale to Boston-based Fenway Sports Group, without input from minority owners.
