Wild shows off new road jersey

Sep 1, 2013, 4:51 PM EDT

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:

They also showed off their new look in a video ahead of the jersey’s game debut in a preseason match with the Winnipeg Jets on Sept. 19:

    Definitely an upgrade from the old ones. I like them a lot!

    They look really nice in my opinion. I just wish the Pens would bring back either the 1991 & 1992 Cup run jerseys or the 1993-1997 Diagonal Pittsburgh jersey<—My preferred choice

      So you want them to be more like the Rangers?

    I like it. The old uniforms seem dated. Nice upgrade.

    I like them a lot more than the current but I am still not 100% satisfied…

    the logo needs to go. should have been the circle puck logo or the writing of Minnesota, anything but the cougar bear thingy…. all of that said, I am happy them finally got new uni’s all the way around with these and the greens. Time to retire the reds

      Oh come on…that’s one of the best logos in all of sports! There are so many layers to it.

      • lordfletcher - Sep 2, 2013 at 4:07 PM

        I think it is a very creative logo, but not great… especially not in the top (anything of all sports).

        The North Stars jerseys were 10x any Wild sweater will ever be.

        again, I like them A LOT, I just think it could have been a tad better is all.

        - a very happy Wild fan

    Very nice upgrades

  9. Stiller43 - Sep 1, 2013 at 5:56 PM

    Still among the ugliest uni’s in sports

  10. greej1938l - Sep 1, 2013 at 7:24 PM

    If you want ugly look at the cleveland browns. I like these new unis as well

  11. russianrebel711 - Sep 1, 2013 at 8:21 PM

    Very nice uniform. I’m a Canes fan & actually hate their new uniforms.. They should have hired the same group the Wild used..

    Waayyy better than the old road sweater.

  13. comeonnowguys - Sep 2, 2013 at 12:45 AM

    Upgrade. They still need to remove the red.

    Make a white version of their green with goldish script lettering alternate.

    Among the ugliest in sports?? What?? Those are good looking uniforms.

    They seem to look a little familiar…
