For those of you that don't know, I have been working on an NHL concept project for the past few months. It is NHL 2012. NHL 2012 is a project I put together that takes a look at how teams might look in a few years. I have done a lot of research on NHL uniform trends and marketing over the years, as well as gathered information about possible upcoming changes for this project. In time for the 2012 NHL season, the league expands it's rules to allow teams to have a 4th jersey. This is mostly for marketing purposes. There are several new trends and fads introduced during the next few years, things like wordmarks on the hems of jerseys and other little things like that.
Anyway, I have been posting the teams alphabetically, and I recently got to Minnesota. Naturally, I thought I should post it here. Enjoy!

2011: For the Wild's 10th season, the teams comes out in new home and road uniforms. And guess what, they are matching! The red jersey has been modified, and a wheat version is created for the road. The green jersey remains the alternate.
2012: The Wild decide to "go green" and make their alternate jersey their home jersey. A matching white version is also introduced for the road. The alternate wheat jersey ends up being worn several times at home, with the road team wearing their dark jerseys. It is also worn often on the road, almost as much as the designated road jersey.
