    It's the moment we have all been waiting for during this Minnesota Wild preseason. No, not seeing Marco Rossi on the top line or Jesper Wallstedt in between the pipes -- the Wild are officially releasing an alternate jersey this Saturday.


    There were already reports and rumors that the Wild would return to the colors of the "Reverse Retro" jerseys from the past few years, for a third, alternate jersey. Now, with a video of some paint pouring down the Wild logo, we get a little bit more confirmation.

    They most likely will not be exactly like either of the past two renditions of the North Star-themed "Reverse Retro" sweaters, but will have those colors and maybe some patches included here and there.

    That's Wild

    I love the reverse retros and hope they just adopt it as the 3rd jersey. What is too bad is not being able to use the former home but now road jersey of that model. They look so much better than the current roadies.

    Dallas no longer owns anything to do with the North stars logo or colors i believe the league owns the rights  ,thats what ive heard in the past anyways.

    That would be ideal!
