Dharmesh Vyas, MD, PhD, was named director of the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex in Cranberry Township, Pa., the National Hockey League said Sept. 9.

The Lemieux Sports Center is the Pittsburgh Penguins' primary practice and training facility. It also serves as an outpatient facility for UPMC sports medicine.

Dr. Vyas joined the Penguins' medical staff in 2021, and he was promoted to head team physician in 2013. Along with his work with the Penguins, he has a clinical practice treating adults and children.

"We are incredibly thankful for the work Dr. Vyas has done over the years with our players and the Penguins organization. We would like to congratulate him on his expanded role," Penguins president and CEO David Morehouse said. "His work, which spans from the treatment of NHL players to youth hockey players, including the Pittsburgh Penguins Elite program, is unmatched in the sports medical field. Dr. Vyas has been a valuable asset to the local Pittsburgh hockey community, and we are very lucky to have him as part of our team."
