The Pittsburgh Penguins unveiled a third jersey they'll use during the 2014-15 season today - and we're big fans of the throwback look.

The "Pittsburgh Gold," a color scheme used way back in the Mario Lemieux Stanley Cup days, returns for 12 games this season. When the Penguins moved away from these jerseys in the early 1990s, they were a league powerhouse with back-to-back Stanley Cups. And although we ranked the current Penguins logo - with its dulled gold color - eighth-best in the NHL, we would rank the Pittsburgh Gold penguin even higher. It's a sharp look.

Check it out. Here are the third jerseys the Penguins will use. Excellent stuff, right?

It leaves us with visions of vintage Lemieux, Ron Francis, Rick Tocchet, Kevin Stevens, Joe Mullen and a mulleted Jaromir Jagr. A-plus.

Here are the 12 dates when you can see these jerseys back on NHL ice.

Oct. 22 vs. Piladelphia

Nov. 15 vs. NY Rangers

Nov. 26 vs. Toronto

Dec. 8 vs. NY Rangers

Dec. 18 vs. Colorado

Dec. 31 vs. Carolina

Jan. 13 vs. Minnesota

Jan. 21 vs. Chicago

Feb. 17 vs. Washington

March 14 vs. Boston

March 15 vs. Detroit

April 1 vs. Philadelphia (no joke)
