St. Olaf and Augsburg are using new helmet designs in 2017 (shown above).

Carleton reportedly began using the "Michigan" helmet design in 1982, but I do not know if it was used continuously from then until 2000. The 1981 helmet design was dark blue with three yellow stripes, and the previous helmet design, used from ? to 1980, was dark blue with one yellow stripe and with a gray faceguard (thanks to site visitor Emmitt for this information).

During 2000 (and possibly earlier), Hamline used a helmet design like the first one shown above, but with the addition of a red "HU" logo on the sides, which may be glimpsed in the very low-quality photograph below. I would appreciate a copy of this logo so that I may add this one to the web site.


SAINT JOHN'S

? - 2015 2016 -
*see note 1 below

The first design shown above was apparently used for many, many years, and I suspect that its immediate predecessor was probably identical, but with a gray facemask rather than white. However, I have not received any specific historical helmet information for this team.

*1 Beginning with Saint John's third game in 2016 (September 17 vs St. Olaf) the team wore the numerals 11 on the right side only of each helmet (as depicted below); this was done in memory of Jacob Wetterling, a Minnesota boy who was abducted in 1989 at age 11 and whose disappearance remained a mystery until 2016 when a suspect confessed to his murder and led authorities to his remains. An article about the SJU helmet memorial mentions that 11 was Jacob's "jersey number" (but does not specify what sport he played). The "11" numerals were to remain on SJU's helmets through the 2016 season.


ST. OLAF

1953 - 1964 1965 - 1980 1997 - 1998

Purple facemasks were in use by at least 2003, and perhaps earlier.
