GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — The Minnesota Wild has unveiled the jersey the team will wear in the 2022 NHL Winter Classic.
The Wild made the big reveal at its Minnesota State Fair booth at 10 a.m. Saturday -- and KARE 11's Dave Schwartz got a front-row preview.
While the jersey is out of the bag, there's still plenty of time before the game itself. The Wild will host the St. Louis Blues in the 2022 NHL Winter Classic on Saturday, Jan. 1, 2022, outdoors at Target Field.
This will be the second NHL outdoor game hosted in Minnesota, but the first Winter Classic. The Wild hosted the Chicago Blackhawks at TCF Bank Stadium (now Huntington Bank Stadium) in 2016 as part of the NHL's Stadium Series.
According to the NHL, this is the league's 13th Winter Classic ever. The Wild is the 10th team to host it and the 14th team to participate.
