Accoring to the Pittsburgh Penguins, they will unveil the new Rbk EDGE uniform at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, September 5th, at the Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills in Tarentum, PA. Ryan Whitney, Ryan Malone and Maxime Talbot are expected to be on hand for the official unveiling.
All NHL teams have adopted the cutting edge new Rbk EDGE Uniform System for the coming season, and have been incrementally unveiling them at various events around the league. The new uniforms have been specifically designed for the NHL player with technologically-enhanced materials and fabrics to be more breathable, more water-resistant, more comfortable and more compatible with NHL equipment. The Penguins’ logo and colors remain unchanged, although there reportedly will be some modifications to the striping, the shoulder areas, the pants and the socks.
The following photographs of the purported new uniform appear to be authentic, however, NHLPens.com staff have been unable to authenticate whether they are the real design, or just a concept. We will find out for sure next Wednesday.
