NHL Announces Pittsburgh's Reverse Retro Jerseys for 2020-21 Season

Jersey announcement coincides with the re-opening of all PensGear stores

by Pittsburgh Penguins @penguins / Media Release

For the first time since the 1996-97 season, the Pittsburgh Penguins will wear a jersey with a diagonal "PITTSBURGH" text on the center of the chest as part of the NHL's adidas Reverse Retro alternate uniforms for the 2020-21 season.

The adidas Reverse Retro jerseys mark the first time that all 31 teams will participate in a League-wide alternate jersey program. adidas worked closely with the NHL and each team to design a Reverse Retro jersey representing unique and historical moments in each club's history, while refreshing the color and design combination for an all-new presentation.

While the Penguins wore black jerseys with the diagonal "PITTSBURGH" text from 1992-97, the 2020-21 version will feature the same script, but will be on a white uniform, signifying a "reverse" take on the classic throwback.

The last time Penguins fans saw jerseys with a diagonal city script, they were being worn by NHL greats such as Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr and Larry Murphy. Now, fans will get to see three-time Stanley Cup champions Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang represent the city of Pittsburgh in these unique throwback uniforms.

A schedule of when Pittsburgh will wear their Reverse Retro jerseys will be announced at a later date.

Fans who would like get their own Reverse Retro sweater can pre-order them through PensGear beginning at 12:00 PM ET, which as of today has re-opened at all three locations. Fans can call 412-553-8553, visit, or visit any of the three locations to pre-order. Below are the new hours for the PPG Paints Arena, UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex, and SouthSide Works locations:
