Head coach Tom Anastos unveiled the new 2012-2013 hockey jerseys today. More importantly, he unveiled the new alternate “vintage” jerseys, which resurrects the “hockey script,” a fan-favorite logo that was scrapped in the 2010 rebranding.
From the press release: Michigan State hockey program will have four new jersey designs for the 2012-13 season, which includes new standard home and away jerseys as well as a set of vintage Michigan State sweaters that will debut in the Great Lakes Invitational.
“In developing this new design, we gathered a lot of feedback from our players about the jersey’s fit, feel, performance and look,” said head coach Tom Anastos. “We feel that the design that Nike has developed has a cutting-edge look and embraces the values of the Spartan brand.”
The press release also gives a history lesson about the hockey script: “The script `Michigan State’ logo was introduced in my freshman season [1980-81] and over the course of time, became one of the iconic jerseys in college hockey,” said Anastos

Today, the Michigan State Athletic department released an image of a repainted Breslin Center floor. The floor was last repainted two basketball seasons ago with the design aligning to the new athletic branding.
Differences in the new design include a significantly larger Michigan State Helmet Logo at center court, new Big Ten logos in the lane and the removal of the two-tone coloring inside the three-point line.
For those eagle eyes out there, the picture looks like it was taken with a cell phone misrepresenting the green coloring. MSU did not change the green again.
