It's a sweater only a Pittsburgh Penguins fan could love.

Television reporter Dan Potash showed up to the team's ugly sweater night with a giant Jake Guentzel face and some smaller Guentzel faces along with snowmen, snowflakes and trees sprinkled on to a neon green background.

Penguins forward Bryan Rust called it "the ugliest Christmas sweater I've ever seen... hands down."

During intermission, Guentzel said it was "Alright."

Penguins fans had a different take, begging for the item to hit the team store at PPG Paints Arena.

Of course, fans at Thursday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets sported their own versions of ugly sweaters.
