ST. PAUL -- Though the Minnesota Wild will likely never be able to wear actual North Star jerseys in an NHL game — the iconic logo still technically belongs to the Dallas Stars — they have found ways to pay homage to Minnesota’s first NHL franchise.

On Thursday afternoon, the Wild unveiled their new Reverse Retro jerseys, which honors the North Stars by featuring the green, yellow, and white color scheme. Naturally, the Wild crest is still emblazoned on the front of the jersey, which is similar to the design used a couple of years ago.

In total, the Wild will wear the new Reverse Retro jerseys in eight home games this season: Nov. 17 vs. Pittsburgh, Nov. 23 vs. Winnipeg, Nov. 25 vs. Toronto, Dec. 14 vs. Detroit, Dec. 16 vs. Chicago, Jan. 4 vs. Tampa Bay, Jan. 8 vs. St. Louis and Jan. 28 vs. Buffalo.
