Add Mario Lemieux to the long list of fans of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ newest jersey.
The Penguins co-owner and Hall of Fame forward received and modeled the team’s new adidas Reverse Retro jersey and was impressed.
Fans, players and team accounts lauded the jerseys that each team unveiled Monday. The Penguins’ is an homage to their former road jersey with diagonal lettering that Lemieux wore throughout much of his playing career.
So it’s no surprise that Lemieux looked like a natural in the new threads and loved the look and feel of the jersey.
“Beautiful,” Lemieux said in a Twitter video about the jersey’s look. “Very nice.”
