Hockey Reveals New Jersey for 2013-14

HOUGHTON, Mich. — Michigan Tech hockey today released its new jersey design for the 2013-14 season. The team's black jersey, it will be worn mainly for road games.

The jersey's style is based on the Boston Bruins black jerseys in terms of coloring and design. The numbers and lettering will be gold with white outline. The shoulder patches will remain the same from last year's black jersey. One is an outline of the Upper Peninsula and the other is a variation of the University seal.

"This is going to be our road jersey, but I plan on having the team wear it at home at least once during the year," said head coach Mel Pearson. "I think the look and shoulder patches pay tribute not only to the University's rich hockey history but also to the Copper Country as the birthplace of professional hockey."

Michigan Tech opens play Oct. 5 with an exhibition vs. Laurentian. The Huskies first regular season game will be Oct. 11 at Minnesota Duluth in their new jerseys.
