NASHVILLE, Tennessee — UND will be wearing special jerseys for the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Game on Saturday night in Bridgestone Arena.

The jerseys will be green with a special design and a nod to the 1994 UND team.

UND has been teasing the jerseys on social media this week ahead of its showdown against Penn State.

Photos show striping on the arms and eight guitar picks underneath the collar — one for each of the program's NCAA national championships.

UND also will have special jerseys for warmups.

"Any time you go to one of these special events, you want to have something commemorative to remember that," UND coach Brad Berry said. "It's just a way of adding another layer to what we do here. (UND equipment manager) Dan Johansson, (Ralph Engelstad Arena general manager) Jody Hodgson and the UND athletic department did an outstanding job creating a jersey. We're excited about it. It's one of those things where once this game is finished and it's history, we'll be able to go back to it and remember that game through this jersey."

It will be the first time UND has created a special game jersey for a destination game.

In Las Vegas, UND wore special jerseys for warmups only.

The Fighting Hawks entered the ice wearing jerseys that had 'Engelstad' and the number 23 on the back to honor the late benefactor and former player, Ralph Engelstad, who built UND's home venue and played goaltender for the team in the program's early days.

Engelstad lived in Las Vegas and his family attended the game.

UND wore road green jerseys for the game in Las Vegas. It wore home white jerseys for the New York City game against Boston College in 2016.
