Third Jerseys unveiled on Nov. 5th

Postby Va Beach Pens Fan on Thu Oct 30, 2008 2:10 pm

My new gig at Kukla's Korner at least allows me to get the press releases from Paul...

----------------------------

PENGUINS PLAYERS TO INTRODUCE THIRD JERSEY NOVEMBER 5


Kennedy, Letang, Goligoski, Bissonnette and Godard to take part;

Event at Dick’s Sporting Goods in The Mall at Robinson is open to the public

Pittsburgh Penguins players Tyler Kennedy, Kris Letang, Alex Goligoski, Paul Bissonnette and Eric Godard will be on hand to model the Penguins’ third jersey Wednesday, November 5 at Dick’s Sporting Goods in The Mall at Robinson. The event will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and is open to the public free of charge.

The jersey and uniform are the same light blue color pattern that the Penguins wore in last season’s NHL Winter Classic against the Buffalo Sabres on New Year’s Day. The light blue color pattern was originally used by the team in the 1970s.

“The blue uniform at the Winter Classic was designed as a one-time thing, but it became so popular among our fans that we decided to ask the league’s permission to use it as our third jersey,” said team president David Morehouse. “It serves a dual purpose – it is a dynamic new look for our current generation of fans, but it also has its roots back in the 70s, so it honors the rich history of the Penguins franchise in Pittsburgh.”

The Penguins third jersey will be worn for select home games during the 2008-09 season starting with the November 15 contest against Buffalo.

The jerseys will be on sale starting Wednesday at all area Dick’s Sporting Goods locations.

FSN play-by-play broadcaster Paul Steigerwald will emcee the event. The current players will be on hand from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. Penguins’ alumni and Stanley Cup Champions Bryan Trottier and Ken Wregget will sign autographs from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. Iceburgh, the team’s mascot, and members of the Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield Vision Plans Pens Patrol will also be in attendance.

Dick’s Sporting Goods in The Mall at Robinson is located at 5000 Robinson Centre Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15205. For more information, please visit www.pittsburghpenguins.com.

I thought I read somewhere that there might be a slightly different font used around the logo.

I was hoping for more white in the uni versus blue. But, it is a blue one. :)

It would be funny if they used the LV gold on the penguins instead of the real gold so they are more like the chinese knockoffs :)

I'm not going to buy one, I'm afraid that if too many sell they'll do what is rumored and go with the baby blues as the primary jerseys when the new arena opens.

From icethetics.info (that guy changes URLs way too much)


Expect to see some slight differences such as added piping and the Vegas gold replacing the classic gold. I'm not certain on this but I do believe the jerseys will be different in some way. Obviously they want to save the one-time-only aspect of those Winter Classic sweaters.

Just say no to piping!

These are going to be big sellers. They have grown on me big time. Still like the home blacks the best but these are nice.

Third Jersey Introduced Wednesday at Dick's

Postby KewellHandLuke on Mon Nov 03, 2008 7:54 pm

Being in Texas, I'm a little out of the loop. I saw that the Pens will introduce a third jersey wednesday and will resemble the baby blues from the winter classic. Are there any pics of the new jerseys yet? I'm guessing that they'll be wearing them on Thursday.

not used in a game until Nov 15


does anyone have any idea if they have released the schedule for the dates in which the third jersey will be used? im going to the game against the canucks on the 22nd and while id love to see it worn, im assuming that it will be worn in more interesting matchups like in games against the Flyers or Rangers.

I'm guessing that they'll wear it for one of the Versus games this month. Possibly the Wings game on the 11th.

There is one of these stores in the North Hills...not everything has to happen @ The Mall at Robinson. :)

Macy's downtown has women's fitted ice blue/white reebok penguin jerseys. Very cool.

I hope the jerseys are the same as the Winter Classic ones, but I have a feeling they will be at least slightly different.

The Winter Classic jerseys sold very well and the Penguins would love the opportunity to release a slightly different version of the jersey in hopes of increasing sales.

I have a bad feeling that there will be piping, like on the new Sabres jerseys.

I really hope this doesn't mark the transition, to the full time colors of the pens going to powder blue & dark blue instead of black & gold.

Look at the past history of the franchise, every-time a 3rd jersey was introduced it was later incorporated into the fold then took over as a regular jersey.

If this happens I will be VERY pissed...

Maybe they are just hinting at that to throw everyone for a loop. Maybe (HOPEFULLY!!!!) when they come walkiong out of wherever, they will be wearing the old BLACK AND YELLOW JERSEY COLORS AGAIN, fingers crossed heres hoping.

If it's not downright hideous, I'll probably be getting a 3rd. I might save up for an authentic one, since I don't like the look of the current replicas.

I dont understand why this organization feels the need to **** up EVERY SINGLE GOOD JERSEY THEY HAVE EVER HAD. It's pathetic, yes I bought a winter classic jersey because those jerseys were/are awesome. I was planning on buying a new one with Fleury when they are released Nov. 5th. If they change the Jerseys like that retarded looking Buffalo "classic", I will never buy a jersey again. Not that they or anyone here cares.


Use the blue winter CLASSIC as the third jersey and go back to the 1991/1992 Jersey designs. Why does everyone feel the need to **** everything up all the time for a quick buck???? The pens do not even get a direct percentage of jerseys they sell, it goes to the friggen NHL. Thats why I respect Lou Lamarillo, NJ has a very very good jersey and they have not and will not change it.


**** stupid
