Mostly because I haven't seen this anywhere but Icethetics, I've decided to throw it up here.
In November, I put up a post about how the IOC is finally forcing Team Canada hockey to move away from its classic logo, as no country is allowed to display their national sports federation logo during the Olympics. As such, Hockey Canada was forced to find something new.
Something new has arrived. Well, something new arrived months ago, but I just found out about it.
Behold: Team Canada's new sweaters.
I, for one, really like it. The colour is awesome, described by designer David Young as "Canadian blood red". The logo is classic, harking back to the Canada Cup days, but modern. Plus, it'll make my 1976 throwback sweater a little more modern (which has its good and bad points to it).
Either way, I was really worried about what they were going to do with the new Team Canada sweaters, but I really, really like this.
Good job, Hockey Canada!
EDIT: August 14, 2009. Hockey Canada's 2010 Olympic jerseys were leaked... see them here.
