On Wednesday, owner and Hockey Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux was sent a jersey and turned into a model. He was one of the first to receive the new jersey and showed it off in front of his collection of trophies.

“Beautiful,” Lemieux said in a video posted to the Penguins’ Twitter account.

The uniform is part of the league-wide Reverse Retro series that all 31 NHL teams will feature.

The uniform will feature the diagonal ‘PITTSBURGH’ text for the first time since the 1996-96 season.
