Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - The Pittsburgh Penguins' longtime public address announcer John Barbero passed away Monday evening at the age of 65.

Barbero had been battling a brain tumor since February 2009.

"On behalf of the entire Penguins organization, I want to express our deepest sympathy to John's family," said team owner and former team superstar Mario Lemieux. "John was one of a kind, a true professional, and he always will be remembered as a member of the Penguins family. He will be missed."

Barbero worked 36 seasons for the team, starting in 1972-73, which included all three Stanley Cup championship campaigns. His final game was Game 6 of the 2009 Stanley Cup Finals against Detroit, when the Penguins won the last of their three titles.
