On Thursday morning, the National Hockey League announced the 2019-20 season.
The National Hockey Players Association has made a number of announcements in the last few days, and in one of those announcements, the league announced a softball helmet is going to be a part of the 2019 season.
The 2019-2020 season starts on Sunday, March 5th, with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The next game is against the Vancouver Canucks on March 20th.
The Pittsburgh Penguins will be wearing a brand new softball head kit.
The helmet is the latest in a long line of softball kits from the Pittsburgh-based team.
On Thursday, NHL.com’s Mark Zengerle tweeted a picture of a Pittsburgh Penguins softball team helmet and said it would be worn by the Penguins in their home opener on Saturday, March 6th against the Minnesota Wild.
It’s unclear when the Pittsburgh helmet will become a part the 2019 regular season, but the Pittsburgh Steelers are known for wearing their home softball jerseys in a variety of ways.
