Commissioner Gary Bettman told Sportsbet’s Elliotte Friedman in June that he had “suggested that it would be appropriate for clubs not to change their jerseys in warmups because it’s become a distraction.” That decision was made after some NHL teams received criticism, including from former Penguins president of hockey operations Brian Burke, after their players refused to wear Pride-themed warmup jerseys during arena Pride Nights.

That means it appears unlikely fans will see the players in green, camo or rainbow jerseys during themed nights, although the Penguins will still be celebrating a Pride Game in 2024. Specialty jerseys can still be designed and sold by teams, Bettman said.
