I love it. I am obviously feeling a little hockey player logo. I mean, they game? We know what hockey. No other team feel the need to put on their jerseys for hockey players. Where there are other calm and classic signs, such as Sweden Tre kronor, or the shield, Czech or emblem, the red sun of Japan. Single Maple Leaf is great. Very good job. Canadian hockey players should ditch the logo and adhere to it.
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.”
Overall I'm very impressed with it. The native art inside the maple leaf is a very nice. If you remember back to the beginning of the year, you'll recall the Blood Red Retro Jersey used during the World Juniors. The way blood red is used truly represents The Blood of Canadians. On the downside...this isn't so much about the jersey, it's more of a complaint to VANOC. Native symbols and art have been used too many times for the 2010 Olympics.
