Here is a cool idea for a new road uniform, seen in video game format. This was done by goalieman40 a while ago. It is a white jersey with the same design as the Wild's current home jersey. A pretty cool look at a nice concept.
Here is a concept from Ryan Haslett, who runs the Hockey Jersey Concepts Blog, www.hockeyjerseyconcepts.com. He sent me this jersey idea, green with the Wild's primary logo. Notice the use of green and wheat, a nice balance. Red is kept to a minimum. I especially like the way those numbers look with that striping design below on the hem. Stay tuned for more work from Haslett in the future.
Our first concept from a designer other than myself comes from Habsfan1. It is a green jersey with Minnesota diagonally on the front. Habsfan1 siad this concept was inspired by the 2004 All Star Game jerseys, and it is part of his NHL Alternate Jersey series. This concept was first released in January 2009. It is the first Wild concept from Habsfan1, and I hope to share more of his work later on.

According to several different sources, the Wild may be making a few uniform changes next season. The pants the Wild wear may be different. Minnesota currently has two different pants, the lighter green with the red and gold stripes, and the darker green, worn with the 3rd jerseys. All sources indicate a change to the darker green pants full time. Also, there is some speculation about a possible new road uniform, but nothing is official yet. Hopefully we get a lot of concepts for a new road jersey!
From the official Minnesota Wild website,
"Happy "Favorite Hockey Jersey" Day! As mentioned on this page earlier this week, it's Hockey Weekend Across America, and today, you were supposed to wear your favorite hockey jersey to the office or school (but I'm pretty sure there is no school in Minnesota today). Your crack Wild staff donned their hockey sweaters as you can see from the photo above. I got all John Scott on everybody and pulled on the Michigan Tech sweater. Sure, I'd rather be wearing UMD Bulldog colors, but Santa keeps forgetting to bring me a Bulldog jersey, so I decided to wear the sweater that is not a threat to UMD's run at a MacNaughton Cup this year."
Some pretty sweet jerseys there.
We start with a concept from myself. It is a road uniform concept for Minnesota. I made a white version of the Wild's current 3rd jeresy, with some modifications. I tried to incorperate many of the aspects of the Wild's current road jersey.
