RETRO Third Jersey (2022 + 2023)

By CGHA, 10/20/22, 1:00PM CDT


Cottage Grove Hockey Association (2 of 2)  APPROVED Game Alternate Jersey & Socks

Cottage Grove Hockey Association (CGHA) is proud to announce the addition of the third (Alternate) Jersey & Sock to our approved on-ice uniform.  In partnership with Advanced Sportswear the design is a take-off of the Minnesota North Stars away jersey introduced in 1978 and worn for the next decade through 1988.  This decade in Minnesota hockey was one of the best on record and saw seven (7) playoff births in ten (10) years and Minnesota's first appearance  in the Stanley Cup Finals (1980-81) vs. the Islanders.  No other chapter in Minnesota Hockey history has put together a winning culture as much as this decade (see table below).

This OPTIONAL third jersey & socks and is available for all teams within the association in-house and traveling.
