Wild shows off new road jersey

19 Comments

The Minnesota Wild will look a little different away from the Xcel Energy Center in 2013-14. They’ve unveiled their new road jersey, which is designed to conform better with their home sweaters.

Vice President of Brand Marketing, John Maher emphasized that they also wanted the road jersey to be unique rather than merely the reverse of what they wear at home, which is part of the reason why it still prominently features the Wild logo on the front.

So you can compare, below is a picture of Josh Harding in the new sweater followed by an image of the Wild celebrating a goal last season in their old jersies:
