Wild unveil new road white jerseys for 2013-14 campaign

Posted on 3rd September 2013 by hockeymedia in Game-Used,The Want List | Tags: ,

NHLThe Minnesota Wild have unveiled a new road white jersey for the 2013-14 season. The jersey was unveiled on Sunday, Sep. 1, 2013.

“It was important for our organization to maintain the primary Wild mark on the new road sweater,” said Vice President of Brand Marketing, John Maher. “We feel the theme of the white jersey fits well into our family of jerseys and wanted this sweater to have a unique look instead of being a reverse of our existing red and green jerseys.”

The Wild took 18 months to design and produce the jersey before this year’s pre-season, taking into account feedback from Wild season ticket holders. The jersey will be worn for the first time on Sep. 19 against the Jets.

Auction: Wild camouflage warm-up jerseys

Posted on 15th March 2011 by hockeymedia in Auctions,Game-Used,The Want List | Tags: ,

NHLThe Minnesota Wild camouflage warm-up jersey auction closes this Mar. 16. The auction features jerseys from the Wild’s pre-game warm up on Feb. 22. Proceeds from the auction benefit the Minnesota-based youth hockey charity, Defending the Blue Line.

MORE FROM THE WILD
Wild Fans don’t miss your chance to bid on autographed, custom designed, one of a kind jerseys only available through this online auction with proceeds benefitting Minnesota based charity Defending the Blue Line. These authentic, one of a kind jerseys were worn by Wild players during pre-game warm ups on February 22, 2011 at Xcel Energy Center when the Wild took on the Edmonton Oilers.

Defending The Blue Line is a charitable foundation for military families. Created in 2009 by a group of Minnesota soldiers, Defending The Blue Line (DTBL) provides free hockey equipment, grants to help with local association fees, some of the best summer hockey camps available, and unique experiences such as attending an NHL game. Military service can be challenging, and with the tempo of deployments since 9/11, many families have been without that “hockey mom or dad” multiple times, usually for a year or more. Defending The Blue Line wants to make sure that during these challenging times, military kids keep playing hockey. Having the kids occupied and around friends on the ice is a great way to take their minds off of the stress that accompanies a deployment.

Defending The Blue Line is excited about all the support and generosity that the hockey community has shown toward our military families and keeping their kids’ skates laced up. DTBL is set on being able to fund 100% of the eligible grant requests next year as a “thank you” to the troops for their service.
