Friday will bring Pens' third outdoor jersey in five years
The Pittsburgh Penguins hopped on the jersey teaser bandwagon today — seems like they've been coming nonstop from around the league since last spring. The Pens offered up a pair of photos today that, frankly, don't tell us very much.
The team will travel to Chicago after the Olympics to face the Blackhawks at Soldier Field. It'll be the Pens' third outdoor appearance since the NHL started making a habit out of it in 2008. Earlier today, the Penguins announced they will unveil their 2014 Stadium Series jersey on Friday at 2 PM ET.
No word yet on whether the Blackhawks will join them.
The Pens followed up their Twitter announcement with a sneak peek of the jersey — if you can call it that. We got a close-up of the Stadium Series shoulder patch (above, left). Then a few hours later came a second teaser photo. It showed a gold triangle over a swatch of black.
I'll be honest. I have absolutely no idea what we're looking at there. There is a small white triangle at the top of that photo, which could be a patch. But is it on the shoulder? There's something going on at the bottom edge of the photo. Maybe a sleeve number?
