Penguins' New Reebok Uniform Remains Largely Unchanged

The logo and colors on the Penguins' new Reebok uniforms "remain unchanged, and the uniforms look pretty much the same except for slightly altered striping in places," according to Dave Molinari of the PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE.  The design “drew favorable reviews from four players" attending yesterday's unveiling.  D Ryan Whitney said, “I like it. It’s tighter fitting, but it’s not too tight where you can’t move" (PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, 9/6). In Pittsburgh, Keith Barnes notes the uniforms feature “several minor alterations with the striping on the sleeves and removal of the art-deco Penguin logo -- a throwback from the Howard Baldwin ownership era -- from the shoulders” to be replaced this season with a patch commemorating the city's 250th anniversary. In addition to the jersey being more tapered, the sides have been cut up along the hips to “almost give the tail the look of a tailored dress shirt” (Pittsburgh TRIBUNE-REVIEW, 9/6).
