and forwards Ryan Malone and Maxime Talbot were on hand as the Pittsburgh Penguins unveiled their new uniforms at the Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills, just off Route 28 in Tarentum.
All 30 NHL teams will be sporting new uniforms for the 2007-08 season as part of the new Rbk EDGE Uniform System -- designed to meet the performance demands of today’s NHL player. The introduction of these new uniforms at the start of season marks the first time in the history of North American professional sports that a uniform innovation has been implemented league-wide.
After more than two years of research, the NHL and Reebok created a uniform system that features technologically-enhanced materials and fabrics that are more breathable, more water-resistant, more comfortable and more compatible with equipment.
The Penguins’ logo and colors will remain the same, although there will be some modifications to the striping, the shoulder areas, the pants and the socks.
