The Pittsburgh Penguins sweaters will have a slightly different look next season. The NHL unveiled new adidas jerseys, touted as stronger, lighter and cooler, on Tuesday, June 20, 2017 in Las Vegas.

The Penguins will have six themed nights for the upcoming season, as well as the Stanley Cup banner-raising for the home opener Oct. 4.

Hopefully no one mixes up Penguins theme nights and arrives with an ugly sweater on Star Wars night.

The team will host a Halloween theme night against the Winnipeg Jets on Oct. 26. Star Wars night is Dec. 7 against the New York Islanders. And Ugly Holiday Sweater takes place on Dec. 21 against Columbus Blue Jackets. Wearing an opponents sweater may or may not count as "ugly."

The Penguins will host a series of decade nights: The 1970s against Carolina Hurricanes on Jan. 4. The 1980s on Jan. 25 versus the Minnesota Wild. And The 1990s on Feb. 15 against the Los Angeles Kings.

The club says that tickets for all regular-season games are on sale now.
