The Minnesota Wild has decided to take a French look at their back end with the unveiling of a French-inspired manicure set to debut this week.
The first look at this look comes from the back end of the dressing room, which includes a pair of white-striped, white-painted gloves and an over-the-shoulder, black-and-white striped tie with a white ribbon on the top.
The tie is a throwback to the NHL’s past, with the stripes coming from the NHL All-Star Game in 1993 and the gloves coming from a 1992-93 playoff game between the New York Islanders and the Chicago Blackhawks.
The gloves are designed with a classic look in mind.
They have a pattern reminiscent of the stripes of the New Jersey Devils and Pittsburgh Penguins, and feature a white-on-black-on red trim on the side.
It’s fitting for the Wild to take on the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night, as the Wild and Minnesota Vikings will meet for the first time this season.
The look has some design elements that aren’t traditional, as there is a white stripe on the back of the gloves.
The white-stripe design, though, is also a nod to the Wild’s history with the French-speaking community.
One look at it, and you’ll see why the Wild have opted to take French style to the back.
It’s a look that has fans excited.
Fans in the stands are seeing the first signs of the Wild taking French style as the team continues to build its roster.
While the team hasn’t said anything officially regarding this new look, they are making some big moves on the trade front.
In addition to bringing back defenseman Zach Parise, the Wild has also reportedly moved forward on a potential deal for forward Ryan Suter.
The Wild will likely be looking to trade Suter for a first-round pick and some assets.
The team has been known to be a proponent of the second round of the draft.
