Bobbleheads seemed to fall out of favor some after their initial surge of popularity, but the Pittsburgh Penguins are going full speed with the jiggling-head giveaways this season. Stars Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang will be featured.

The Penguins announced their promotional schedule Monday.
