First thoughts on a third jersey

Well, Wild fans, whaddya think?

The new third jersey has been officially unleashed upon the hockey world. And, as with such new items, there is a surrounding amount of hoopla to go with it.

A crowd estimated at several thousand (to the consternation of Minnesota State Fair officials) packed Underwood Street in front of the former Modern Living building (now called 'Fan Central') to see Wild forward Derek Boogaard model the new Wild green third jersey during a Sunday afternoon State Fair appearance, after which Boogaard signed an estimated 800 autographs.

The new third jerseys can be seen here:

The new green jerseys will be seen 15 times this season (13 home games, 2 road games) according to an announcement at today's event.
