The Minnesota Wild announced a new, yet familiar look on Friday when it unveiled its 2007 version of the RBK Edge uniforms. While all 30 National Hockey League teams will be playing with newly-designed uniforms, some have made drastic changes. The Wild has remained true to its original design with several minor changes.
The most notable change appears on the team's Iron Range Red home sweater, which will move up in status from the "third" jersey to become the team's primary home sweater, replacing the green from years past. That change comes in the form of a new wheat-colored shoulder yolk and the removal of the forest green striping at the waist.
The white road jerseys also stay close in design to the original and feature narrower accent striping on the sleeves and a new gold collar. The Wild, like all NHL teams will not wear a third or “alternate “jersey” during this first season of the RBK Edge uniform system.
The new sweaters will be available for purchase by the public beginning on Friday, September 14 at the Hockey Lodge locations at Xcel Energy Center and Mall of America. Fans can also pre-order the new sweaters. Click here

Wild players will also be modeling the new jerseys at the Mall of America East Rotunda on Saturday, Sept. 15 as part of the “State of Hockey Celebration,” which will also include the Rbk EDGE uniform display, detailing the science behind and evolution of the NHL’s new jersey system.
