NBC Universal, Inc.

A good hockey sweater never goes out of style.

The USHL's Chicago Steel announced earlier this month that the team will be wearing a Taylor Swift-inspired jersey on Feb. 17 when they host an "Eras Night" at Fox Valley Ice Arena.

The jerseys are modeled after Swift's official "Eras Tour" merchandise and feature several nods to the pop star's discography, including snakes, a clock set to midnight, a red scarf, and even her famous pet cats.

They also feature images from "different eras of Chicago Steel hockey," including championship moments, top players and other memories from the club's 24-year history," according to a press release.

Each of Swift's album titles are written on the sleeves, along with two friendship bracelets around the wrists. Players will be rocking one "Reputation" jumpsuit-inspired sock to mimic the singer's tour costume.

"We wanted a promotion where fans could feel 22," Steel President Dan Lehv said. "If it doesn’t work, Don't Blame Me. If you do, it's fine — my tears ricochet."

The special sweaters will be auctioned online from Feb. 15-22 with bidding beginning at $150. All of the proceeds will benefit the Geneva Academic Foundation

For those interested in attending the game against the Tri-City Storm on Feb. 17, tickets are available online or can be purchased in person at the Steel Box Office at Fox Valley Ice Arena or by calling 855-51-STEEL. Fans will enjoy Swift's Grammy Award-winning music throughout the arena and can purchase special Chicago Steel friendship bracelets on game night.

It's sure to be an enchanted evening.
