"These unique and brilliant rings will always be an inspiring symbol of what our players and coaches accomplished by winning the Stanley Cup," president and CEO David Morehouse said.

Each ring features the Penguins' logo on top with the words, "Stanley Cup Champion" framing the top and bottom edges. The right panel features four diamond-encrusted Stanley Cup trophies and the year "2016." The left side has the team name, as well as the player's number and his last name.

"Just play," the Penguins' motto, is engraved on the inside, as is the records of the four playoff series wins on the road to the Cup.

The Penguins begin defense of their championship against the Washington Capitals on Thursday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports 2).
