So, for like the first time in ages I bought myself a hockey jersey…
I recently started Graduate School. I am enrolled in the New Media Studies (aka “Multimedia”) program at DePaul University in Chicago. Well, it turns out that DePaul has a Collegiate Division II hockey team, which is pretty awesome because my undergrad college only had Ultimate Frisbee.
If there’s two things I like, it’s hockey and writing about hockey, so I went to the first game of the season this past Friday–not only as a spectator, but to cover the game for DePaul’s student newspaper.
It’s only been three weeks, but so far grad school has been pretty cool. I’ve totally enjoyed the class I’m taking, I get to write for their school paper and they have a hockey team.
As for the jersey…well, I couldn’t pass it up. It was $30, and has an old school look to it with the shoelace neck. Now I just got to find a place that can put some New York Ranger-style numbers on it.
Here’s the link to the DePaul Hockey Club.

Hello I am a Fellow Blue Demon and I really really really need to get myself one of these classic jerseys. Could you please tell me how/where you got it. you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your help
I bought the jersey at DePaul’s home opener. However, I think that was the last one–the woman at the merchandise table told me that it was “last year’s jersey” and that it was the last one.
Man what I would give for DePaul to make jerseys for students and alumni like Purdue does. Neither officially sponsor a team, but I know Purdue sells a piece of merch in that style for around $60. Funny that years after graduating I find your article from 2008, and it seems they didn’t go on to make anything more like it. With such a cool university logo I’d wish the school themselves would put out some jerseys but I’ve had issues with their merch for a while haha.
I did find the local hockey shop that makes their current gear (pre-covid so idk if they’re still open). So at least I’ve got that option in my back pocket whenever I finally get around to it. I think it runs around $130-150 with name and number if anyone is interested.
Thanks for your comment. When did you go to DePaul? Also, does that shop do jersey customization? I’ve been meaning to get some numbers put on this jersey. I got my first masters degree in 2010, so I’m thinking of getting 10 on the back and on the sleeves.
