The Mavericks wore a new throwback/alternate jersey on Saturday night, and it may have been one of the best ones MSU has had since it started using third jerseys a few years ago. Here is this year's third jersey, followed by a collection of several of the team's past alternates.
I'm missing one for sure (gold jersey with Minnesota State and the player's number on the front; Thanks to alert reader Travis Schneider of Danube, I have a picture of the gold one and one other very special jersey (see below). Are there others I'm forgetting?
|Tyler Elbrecht gets set to go on the ice Saturday night against RPI.|
|David Backes in the 1980 Division II national championship-inspired design.|
|Rylan Galiardi in the uniforms designed after the 1991 NCAA Division III runners up.|
|Old-school style but not a true throwback, with patch to honor 40 years of MSU hockey.|
|Gray-and-purple alternate from a few years ago.|
|Here is the gold version of that style. (Thanks, Travis Schneider!)|
|Last season's camouflage jerseys worn just once, against the U.S. national team.|
|Then there is this one from 1999-2000, MSU's first year in the WCHA. What more can you say? (Thanks again, Travis!)|
|Meanwhile, here is this year's MSU women's home jersey, which is outstanding!|
