Wild unveil new Reverse Retro jerseys, which pay homage to North Stars
In total, the Wild will wear the new Reverse Retro jerseys in eight home games this season.
ST. PAUL -- Though the Minnesota Wild will likely never be able to wear actual North Star jerseys in an NHL game — the iconic logo still technically belongs to the Dallas Stars — they have found ways to pay homage to Minnesota’s first NHL franchise.
On Thursday afternoon, the Wild unveiled their new Reverse Retro jerseys, which honors the North Stars by featuring the green, yellow, and white color scheme. Naturally, the Wild crest is still emblazoned on the front of the jersey, which is similar to the design used a couple of years ago.
In total, the Wild will wear the new Reverse Retro jerseys in eight home games this season: Nov. 17 vs. Pittsburgh, Nov. 23 vs. Winnipeg, Nov. 25 vs. Toronto, Dec. 14 vs. Detroit, Dec. 16 vs. Chicago, Jan. 4 vs. Tampa Bay, Jan. 8 vs. St. Louis and Jan. 28 vs. Buffalo.
The new Reverse Retro will first be available for purchase exclusive for season-ticket holders on Nov. 15 at The Hockey Lodge at Xcel Energy Center. They will be available for purchase for all fans on Nov. 16. You can get them in person at The Hockey Lodge or online at www.hockeylodge.com.
“Our original Reverse Retro white uniform, featuring the North Stars colors and ’78 striping, was a knock-out look that our fans really embraced,” Wild senior brand advisor John Maher said in a release. “Coming back with a green version for our Reverse Retro 2022 Jersey was a natural next step for us.”
