i found this on amazon and thought it was way sweet. then i noticed the writing on the left shoulder says "western division"

is that just a really weird mistake (id imagine it would say "eastern conference") or is that just the name of the brand or something

The Pens were originally a part of the Western Division along with the other five expansion teams from 67-68.

I noticed and wondered that too. But, I really, really like that jersey and requested one for Christmas. I think, since it is a throw back style, it means the Pens originally played in the Western Division. When they started, the farthest west the NHL went was Chicago I think.

When the league doubled its size in 1967, they put all the established team in the East, all the expansion teams in the West.
