Survey Says: Penguins players weigh in on robo-Penguin logo

CRANBERRY, Pa. -- Back at the beginning of July, Penguins president of business operations Kevin Acklin told me "never say never" when I asked if we'll ever see the Penguins' old logo that debuted 1993 make a return.

A leak from the sports fan gear shop Fanatics this summer was the first indication that the Penguins will be bringing that logo back out of retirement for the first time they stopped using it as a shoulder patch in 2007.

Call it the "triangle Penguin," the "robo-Penguin," the "pigeon," or whatever you want. It's almost certainly coming back.
