PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Penguins radio play-by-play announcer Mike Lange is stepping away from the booth.

Lange announced his retirement from radio play-by-play duties on Monday but the 73-year-old Hall of Famer will remain part of the team’s radio network by adding commentary and voice work on a limited basis.

Lange missed the majority of the past season during the pandemic while awaiting the COVID-19 vaccine.

He returned to the booth to call two regular-season and two home playoff games.
