When the University of Michigan-Dearborn hockey team takes the ice at Clark Park for its outdoor game on Jan. 3, they’ll be doing it in style.
For the second consecutive season, the Wolverines will wear alternate jerseys for its outdoor game against Oakland.
This year’s jersey features a maize base layered with navy blue numbers and script lettering, which are comprised of a triangular pattern similar to Michigan football’s throwback threads for its inaugural Under the Lights game.
Rebirth Sports, a custom uniform and apparel manufacturer out of Saginaw, Mich., produced the uniforms for the Wolverines.
“This year we actually had a company contact Jase (Paciocco) with all the ideas and designs,” forward Jeremy Klotz said. “I am extremely excited to sport these jerseys, because they are a symbol of this year’s team.”
UM-Dearborn created custom jerseys for last year’s outdoor game against Oakland. The uniform tops were saved for Great Lakes Collegiate Hockey League postseason play with the game being cancelled.
