Icethetics may be in the middle of a major move right now but the news doesn't stop.
An advertisement appearing in rotation on the Pittsburgh Penguins' web site seems to be promoting the third jersey unveiling for Monday. Which begs the question: Are they confused or was it a simple mistake?
My guess is mistake.
The Pens announced Thursday on their own web site that the unveiling would take place on Wednesday, November 5 from 6 to 8 PM at Dick's Sporting Goods in The Mall at Robinson.
I'm going to assume that is the correct date and this ad will be fixed and replaced once somebody notices.
Now about the image of the jersey in the ad. It is not the new third jersey. In fact, it's the same image that was released for the Winter Classic — sans the Winter Classic patch on the front.
Expect to see some slight differences such as added piping and the Vegas gold replacing the classic gold. I'm not certain on this but I do believe the jerseys will be different in some way. Obviously they want to save the one-time-only aspect of those Winter Classic sweaters.
Thanks to Jesse and Brian for sending in this image.
