Penguins Show 2011 Winter Classic Uniform

Check out the uniforms the Penguins will wear in the 2011 Winter Classic on January 1. They're somewhat reminiscent of the powder-blue uniforms the Pens wear as alternates, but this one is mostly dark, with bits of light blue around the sleeves and torso. The uniforms are considered a "fusion" of various uniforms:

"We wanted to create a uniform that celebrates the rich history of Penguins hockey, but with a new look – giving fans something they would really like," said Keith Leach, Director of Merchandising for Reebok.
The logo, which was previously released in May, is the Penguins’ original logo from the inaugural 1967-68 season – although it was never worn on a uniform. It features a skating penguin, wearing a scarf.

These look really cool. They'll go on sale November 15.
