Hockey Canada Unveils Third Jersey For '12 IIHF World Junior Championship

Jersey was inspired by Canadian junior teams that won gold in '82 and '94
Hockey Canada yesterday "revealed a special edition third jersey" for the '12 IIHF World Junior Championship in Alberta, according to Kristen Odland of the CALGARY HERALD. The jersey "was inspired by two gold medal-winning Canadian teams -- the 1982 junior team that won gold in Minnesota and the 1994 edition that captured gold in the Czech Republic." The jersey -- which is "mostly red with white stripes around the arms and the base -- has been updated, however, with three maple leaves on the front to celebrate Hockey Canada's Program of Excellence." Hockey Canada President & CEO Bob Nicholson said, "Looking back over 30 years, this is the jersey that started it. We've won a lot of gold medals with it." Odland notes the jerseys "will hit the shelves Nov. 1 in Nike stores, Sport Chek, and Team Canada retailers across the country and will be available online at hockeycanada.ca for $140" (CALGARY HERALD, 10/26). Team Canada will wear the third jersey "at least once" during the '12 junior tournament (CP, 10/25).
