We've got some exciting third jersey news in this afternoon. I use the term "exciting" loosely, as any news is pretty "exciting" at this point in the summer.
Icethetics reader Josh used that ubiquitous new medium, Twitter, to gather some new information with regard to the Minnesota Wild's new third jersey. He asked Star Tribune beat writer Michael Russo if there was an announcement of some kind in the works.
According to Russo, the unveiling will take place during training camp, which is typically in early to mid-September. (The Wild's preseason schedule kicks off on September 15 in St. Louis.) He says he's seen them and he likes them. I think it's safe to say that bodes well for everyone.
Russo went on to tell Josh that, based on the pictures he's seen, the new sweater will, in fact, be green with a "cursive" script across the front that reads "Minnesota Wild." In other words, NOT what previous "leaks" would have you believe.
Stick with Icethetics for all the newest information as we continue to track third jersey news throughout the summer (and fall if necessary).
