Earlier this week, Notre Dame officially announced that it would switching to Under Armour as the official outfitter for all Fighting Irish athletics teams following this academic year. That means Irish fans only have a few months to enjoy the current look of their team’s uniforms, and some of them are quite snazzy. Case in point: this afternoon, Notre Dame defenseman Kevin Lind tweeted out a photo of the awesome gold camouflage jerseys that Notre Dame will wear against Northeastern this weekend — after the game they will be auctioned off and the proceeds will go to Hockey Saves:

Per the school’s athletics site:
Notre Dame will honor members of the military this weekend as they help to raise money for “Hockey Saves.” Based in Fort Benning, Ga., the program began to provide soldiers at the base an outlet through hockey. Originally, it provided ice time for a few dozen servicemen but has grown to include over 200 players in Fort Benning. With all the players joining the organization, the groups’ needs have grown for equipment and ice time.
This weekend, Notre Dame will wear specially designed jerseys in the two games that will then be auctioned in an on-line auction at und.com. Proceeds from the auction will go to Hockey Saves.
I think Reebok nailed these ones — we’ll see what Under Armour comes up with in the future.
