Per the official website:
On Saturday, December 4th, the Icers are bringing back Penn State's original school colors - Pink and Black (if you don't believe us, check out GoPSUSports.com).I'm a jersey geek (yes, in addition to being an arena geek and a geek for many other things as well), and I'm salty that I never seem to be able to make it in for the 3rd jersey auction games (especially last year's, my favorites), so hopefully I'll be able to get to the Ice Pavilion to grab one of these. Obviously, it's for a great cause, so I'm willing to forgive the gigantic ribbon going across the entire jersey...but seriously, couldn't we have gone with something slightly more low-key, like what's being modeled by Mr. Scrivens here?
The Icers "Pink In The Rink" will coincide with our annual, Third Jersey Auction. All of the game-worn jerseys that day will be up for auction during the Icers' game against Delaware. Auction winners will have the opportunity to meet players after the game to autograph their game-worn jerseys.
A portion of the proceeds will go directly to the Relay for Life Cancer Walk which will take place on April 8th and 9th, 2011 at the Penn State AG Fields.
Auction bids may be made by cash or check only and winners must be at the game to claim their jersey.

Can I say something nice about it? Sure. Change the black to blue and get rid of the pink, and that should be the jersey come 2012. Anybody listening?
