Earlier today, Hockey Canada unveiled the new team Canada hockey jerseys that will be worn by both the mens and womens teams as they represent our country in the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. They kind of have a mix of retro and new rolled into one. Pretty cool. And instead of a flat colour maple leaf, there are secondary graphics related to Canada
The Team Canada jerseys feature a large maple leaf crest in the centre on either a red or white background. Inside the crest are smaller maple leaves representing past gold medal counts for Canada's men's, women's and ice sledge hockey teams and a nod to the traditional Team Canada image of a hockey player and stick.
VANCOUVER, B.C. – Hockey Canada unveiled Team Canada’s 2010 hockey jersey on Monday, the result of a partnership with the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC), Nike Canada Corp., the Canadian Olympic Committee and the Canadian Paralympic Committee. These Hockey Canada jerseys by Nike will be worn exclusively at the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Vancouver by the men’s, women’s and sledge hockey teams representing Canada.
“Hockey Canada would like to thank all of its partners that have helped make these special 2010 Winter Games jerseys a reality,” said Bob Nicholson, Hockey Canada’s president and CEO. “These two jerseys will complement our traditional jersey, while respecting International Olympic Committee guidelines for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.”
