Penguins Reverse Retro Jersey Release: Robo-Pigeon Returns, Full Schedule

Published

Pittsburgh Penguins Reverse Retro Jersey, Sidney Crosby

The NHL made official the new reverse retro sweaters on Thursday morning. Over the past couple of months, the jerseys and logos have been leaked online. Now they are official, and the ill-fated robo-pigeon logo will return this season as the Pittsburgh Penguins reverse retro jersey.

The logo debuted for the Penguins’ 1992-93 season, which was their bid for a Stanley Cup three-peat. Those hopes ended when New York Islanders pest David Volek beat goalie Tom Barrasso in overtime of Game 7, Round Two at the Civic Arena. The logo persisted through bankruptcy and the worst era of Penguins hockey since the pre-Mario days, known as Generation Next.

The team has not yet announced plans for Aleksey Morozov or Milan Kraft sweaters, yet.

Fans can pre-order the adidas Penguins Reverse Retro jersey exclusively on the Penguins merchandise website: www.pensgear.com through Nov. 15. ADIZERO Authentic jerseys and replicas will be available in Penguins retail stores, on the adidas and NHL websites on Nov. 15.

Additional retailers will have the jerseys beginning on Nov. 20.

REVERSE RETRO SCHEDULE:

Tuesday, November 15                       vs. Toronto Maple Leafs

Friday, November 25                           at Philadelphia Flyers

Tuesday, November 29                       vs. Carolina Hurricanes

Tuesday, December 6                         vs. Columbus Blue Jackets

Tuesday, December 20                       vs. New York Rangers

Tuesday, January 10                           vs. Vancouver Canucks

Tuesday, January 24                           vs. Florida Panthers

 

The robo-pigeon logo does not mean the Penguins third jerseys with block letters, which have been used in black and in white over the past two seasons, will be mothballed. The black Penguins third jerseys with diagonal P-I-T-T-S-B-U-R-G-H eight times this season, beginning with tonight’s home game versus the LA Kings. The team is 8-1-1 in the iconic diagonal lettering sweaters.

THIRD JERSEY SCHEDULE:

Thursday, October 20                         vs. Los Angeles Kings

Tuesday, November 1                         vs. Boston Bruins

Thursday, December 1                        vs. Vegas Golden Knights

Thursday, December 22                     vs. Carolina Hurricanes

Thursday, February 23                        vs. Edmonton Oilers

Meanwhile Vegas gold was probably the color of the unis when you started watching the Pens.
