Mystery Hockey Jersey

Can anyone identify this hockey jersey for me?

I found it at the thrift store, the name on it is PROGRAF. Could be a guys name, but it is also a transplant anti-rejection drug. Does anyone know this logo? It does have a sales tag on it and the team listed is PIT. It is a CCM brand jersey. Made in Canada. Thanks, I have searched all over, but I can't match it.

Best answer: Prograf is some sort of pharmaceutical, and so they made a jersey for marketing purposes:

"Prograf® (tacrolimus) is indicated for the prophylaxis of organ rejection in patients receiving allogeneic liver, kidney, or heart transplants."

Best answer: and the logo is the logo for Prograf.

Response by poster: Thanks, I did visit the Prograf drug site, but I skipped the intro which I now see has a huge version of the logo. Thanks Mach5

The colour scheme makes me think Pittsburgh Penguins, which would fit with the PIT part. It doesn't look like a typical Penguins jersey though - maybe an exhibition or charity game?

Best answer: Here is a black version of their jersey... looks pretty similar, as far as I can see.

Which would make sense, since Prograf was pioneered in Pittsburgh. And I'm done spamming now.

Response by poster: Thanks Phire, your not spamming. You can't tell from my picture, but the colors and lines are the same as the Penguins Jersey.
