Mario Lemieux will meet with Kansas City officials Wednesday as part of the process of evaluating future options for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Lemieux and other members of the team's front office are set to meet with representatives of the $276-million multipurpose Sprint Center, which is scheduled to open in the fall of 2007, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. All 72 luxury suites at the arena have already been sold.

"We are meeting with officials in Kansas City today as part of our effort to explore all of our options regarding a new arena," Lemieux said in a statement. "We have heard many great things about their new building, which is scheduled to open in time for the start of the 2007-08 NHL season."

The meeting comes ahead of a scheduled get together with state and local government officials in Pittsburgh, who are keen to discuss "Plan B" to try and keep the Penguins from leaving.
