The Wilson Athletic company made these jerseys that were customized locally by the Pittsburgh Sport Shop. The circular crest would be used until January 1972 until the Penguins had the third variation in their uniform.
The logo changed as the circle with “PITTSBURGH PENGUINS” font was removed and the Penguins would wear a crest that featured the familiar skating penguin thathad a slightly longer beak and a broader shoulder line.
The tie-down jerseys were all knit and were manufactured by Wilson Sports.
Player’s names were added to the back of jerseys for nationally televised games.
The 1971-72 jerseys were likely worn again by the Pens for the 1972-73 season.
