You know hockey season is getting close when jersey news starts heating up like it has lately. While we continue to monitor sneak peeks of the new sweaters from the Sabres and Sharks, we've learned the Minnesota Wild will join the fray next Monday.

The Wild announced a couple of things on their website today. First, they confirmed there will be a new road sweater this season and it will be officially unveiled at the Minnesota State Fair on Sept. 1 at 11:30 AM CT. But during the week leading up to that, they "will be unveiling snippets of the sweaters" via Twitter starting Aug. 26.

Also from the release, for Minnesota fans:

The unveiling event will feature newly acquired Wild forward Nino Niederreiter, forward Stephane Veilleux and Nordy. The Wild’s State Fair booth is located in the FAN Central building at the intersection of Dan Patch Avenue and Underwood Street. In addition to just seeing the new uniforms, fans can register to win a road jersey at the team’s booth in FAN Central each day of the fair.

The jersey will go on sale Sept. 3 at Hockey Lodge locations, according to the team.
