The Pittsburgh Penguins have officially announced they will be unveiling their new third jersey on Wednesday, November 5. That's a day earlier than we previously thought.
You can read about the event on their web site. It will take place at Dick’s Sporting Goods in The Mall at Robinson from 6 to 8 PM. It will be open to the public. So I encourage those of you that can make it to take pictures and send them in to share with everyone.
According to their statement, the new alternate sweater will be modeled after their Winter Classic jersey from last season. I understand it won't look exactly the same and there may be some piping involved, but this powder blue jersey is the basic design.
Along with this announcement, the Pens' have a link to a very informative page about the team's uniform history. Worth a read.
Thanks to Vincent for the tip.
On a related note, the Chicago Blackhawks have not yet said anything publicly about their anticipated third jersey. However, I would expect to see it show up without a lot of fanfare on Monday night when they face the Avalanche.
The Hawks along with the Red Wings recently unveiled their Winter Classic jerseys, which look spectacular if you ask me.
I'll keep on top of things and let you know whatever I find out.
