Latest photo shows new sweater's striping
The Minnesota Wild have now released four of the seven teaser images planned ahead of the official unveiling of the new road jersey on Sunday. Prior to today, all we'd learned about were the details of the collar. The latest photo shows us the striping.
For those expecting a reversed version of the Wild's green alternate jersey, this is evidence to support you. Whether we're looking at a sleeve or the waist, this striping pattern looks awfully familiar. But that makes sense.
At the moment, all three of Minnesota's jerseys look wildly different (accidentally pun) — none use the same template. So I wouldn't be surprised to see this new jersey move closer in style to one of the others. And given how much the green appears in team marketing and promotions, it's a safe bet they're going in that direction.
Again, the full jersey will be revealed at the Minnesota State Fair on Sunday at 11:30 AM CT. I'll have photos here once they're available.
By the way, is anyone terribly disappointed that it's late Thursday morning and we still haven't seen a new teaser photo from the Buffalo Sabres? Yeah, me neither.
Wild reveal red numbers for new sweater
Make that five! The Wild released their fifth teaser photo on the way to Sunday's road jersey unveiling. This one shows us they're sticking with red numbers (outlined in green, of course). Seems this jersey may have a nice mix of red and green. Just hope it doesn't start looking to Christmas-y.
The photo appears to show the sleeve numbers. I would expect the colors to be the same for the numbers on the back as well. What's a little sad is that the rugged-style numbers Minnesota had used from their inception in 2000 seem to be completely gone now.
This number style (font?) is the same as what's in use on the home and third jerseys. Simple, block lettering. it's almost as though they're "wild" no more.
Two more days until we see the whole thing! Plus, I'm cooking up something special following the unveiling.
