Minnesota State 'uni watch' (updated)

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!

I love the gold jerseys, except for the one they wore 1999-2000. I hope MSU would have more gold in their hockey uniforms.

I really enjoyed the MSU throwbacks with the small additions they made such as more gold and the Stomper logo on the shoulder of each side. It would be nice for them to acknowledge the university's name on it, although the current road and home versions that look kind of like the Dallas Stars' jersey is great.
