"The Pittsburgh Penguins join the greater Pittsburgh community in standing up against this senseless violence and supporting the victims and families of the Tree of Life Synagogue," said David Morehouse, president and CEO of the team. "Under these circumstances, we determined it was not appropriate to continue with our annual Halloween theme on Tuesday, so those activities have been cancelled. The entire city has a heavy heart."

Donations will be accepted at all three gates. A moment of silence will be observed before the game.

Originally, annual Halloween activities were planned for the evening, but were canceled by the team following Saturday's shooting.
