FELDY: Didn't the Minnesota Wild just get rid of their green jerseys? Well, if you missed having a dark green sweater in the rotation, your brief wait is over. The Wild will unveil their new third jersey on Sunday at the Minnesota State Fair.
Actually, the Web site icethetics.info has already uncovered the new green jersey. You can find Wild D Brent Burns modeling it here. It's actually kind of a sharp jersey. Has a high-school jersey look to it, which should be popular in this state. It's a great complement to the Wild's white and red sweaters.
The Wild will officially unveil the jersey at 12:30 p.m. Sunday at the Fan Central building at the State Fair. Fans can pre-order the new sweater at the State Fair or at the Hockey Lodge stores at the Mall of America or the Xcel Energy Center. The new sweaters will not be available for pick-up until Oct. 21, the night the Wild will wear them in a game for the first time (against Colorado). The new green sweaters will be available only at the Hockey Lodge stores from Oct. 21-26, then elsewhere starting Oct. 27.
By the way, Wild preseason tickets are on sale now. Rochester native Bryce Lampman and the St. Louis Blues come to The X on Sept. 24 at 7 p.m., while cabby-beating Patrick Kane and the Chicago Blackhawks visit on Sept. 20 at 5 p.m.
