The Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday officially changed their uniform colors to black and Pittsburgh gold, the same ones they wore when they won the Stanley Cup in 1991 and 1992.

The Penguins wore alternate jerseys featuring Pittsburgh gold for the past two seasons and for all home games during the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The new color scheme will be used on the black home jerseys and the white road jerseys.

Pittsburgh used a shinier Vegas gold as a main uniform color on its sweaters, socks and pants from 2002-03 through 2015-16.

The new sweaters closely resemble the design the Penguins wore when winning their first two championships. They were wearing the Vegas gold road uniforms when they won the Cup in 2009 and 2016.
