A new format will be in place for the Penguins’ annual Fan Appreciation Night ‘Shirts Off Our Backs’ giveaway next week.

Fan Appreciation Night will be held on Saturday, May 8th when the Penguins take on the Sabres at 3:00 p.m.

The change in format comes due to the in-person jersey giveaway being unable to take place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Instead of the ceremony being held in-person, there will be a keyword contest.

Fans can learn each of the four keywords by watching the following games on AT&T SportsNet, listening to the Penguins Radio Network and following the Penguins on Twitter.

  • Saturday, May 1 at Washington – 7:00 PM
  • Monday, May 3 at Philadelphia – 7:00 PM
  • Tuesday, May 4 at Philadelphia – 7:00 PM
  • Thursday, May 6 vs. Buffalo – 7:00 PM

Fans in attendance for the home game on Thursday, May 6 will receive the keyword in-game.

Those keywords can then be entered on the Penguins website, with the contest ending on May 6th at 10:00 p.m.

Fans may enter one keyword per game for a total of four total chances to win.

Winners will be announced throughout Fan Appreciation Night on Saturday, May 8.
