Wisconsin will wear special alternate jerseys that are reproductions of those won by UW's 1931-1932 team.

Monday morning during Mike Eaves' weekly press conference, Wisconsin unveiled new throwback uniforms that the Badgers will wear during this year's Office Max Hockey City Classic.

According to a release from the school, the alternate uniforms are reproductions of those worn by Wisconsin's 1931-32 team. Inside the collar of the uniforms are the words, "It's a great day for hockey." Hemmed into the bottom of each is the date of the game and the teams participating, along with the logo featured outside of Soldier Field.

The jerseys will be worn for a special outdoor game being played Feb. 17 in Chicago. Wisconsin will play Minnesota in the second game of a doubleheader that also features CCHA rivals Miami and Notre Dame.

The game between Minnesota and Wisconsin will mark their final regular season battle as members of the WCHA. Starting in 2013-14, Wisconsin and Minnesota will join Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan and Michigan State in the Big Ten Hockey Conference.

The OfficeMax Hockey City Classic marks the third time in eight seasons the Wisconsin hockey program will play one of its games outdoors. The Badgers defeated Ohio State, 4-2, in the Frozen Tundra Hockey Classic at Lambeau Field in 2006 and beat Michigan, 3-2, at the Culver’s Camp Randall Hockey Classic in 2010.

Replica throwbacks are now on sale at Buckyslockerroom.com for $99.
