The Penguins wore Cooper mesh jerseys for the second consecutive season in 1986-87. The tri-color Cooper logo with "Cooper" underneath was embroidered on the back right hemline, but in 1986-87 it was moved entirely to the bottom yellow hem stripe. Opposite the Cooper logo was "CENTURY SPORTS" - the local Pittsburgh lettering company who heat-pressed the numbers and names onto the jerseys. The inside neckline of each jersey featured the three manufacturer's tags including the Cooper / Made in Canada / model # tag over top of the size tag and to the left a red maple leaf logo'd "APPROVED" tag.
The Penguins began wearing Set 1 jerseys with the start of the 1986-87 regular season on October 9, 1986 vs. Washington. The set continued throughout the regular season and was worn through the 1986-87 pre-season. The Home (white) jerseys were worn in a total of 40 games while the Road (black) jerseys were worn in a total of 40 games during the 1986-87 regular season. Each individual jersey within the set was worn as allocated by the Pittsburgh Penguins and each jersey should be researched individually to determine exactly when each jersey was worn.
